Just picked up a bottle of Ryan & Wood Rye Whiskey from a liquor store in Cambridge, MA. From a quick search it looks like this whiskey was just released this week.
From the bottle:
"At our Gloucester distillery, rye is partnered with a measure of wheat and barley, then mashed, fermented and distilled 'on the grain'. The distillate ages for over two years in new charred American White Oak barrels maturing under the influence of Cape Ann's unique coastal climate."
Interesting stuff. Spicy rye flavor with a bit of the wheat. Tastes older than the other young rye I purchased recently- Willett 3yr from Julios. Almost has a Moxie soda flavor to it. I like it.
Has anyone else in Mass tried this?
