    Perhaps Mr. Pogue will step in to give us an update.

    i want to try this. I know lots of folks will say too young, but I put some rye malt up in 53's damn stuff was mighty fine in a year. Rye ages faster we know, but rye malt even that much faster.

    Kentucky law requires that any spirit sold in the gift shop must at least be available for sale to any other Kentucky retailer.

    I've seen a prototype label and it's pretty cool.

    Obviously, the proof will be in the tasting, but good for them.

    I was just going by what they said on their fb page. No matter, I'll probably still seek it out to try.

    It appears it is the five fathers of the Pogue family going back to when the distillery first began although they aren't named here. I presume this is a continuation of their Limetstone Landing white dog rye malt which it sounds like they distilled, unlike the bourbon. That white dog was released last year so can this new rye be very old? Seems unlikely but as those with more experience have noted rye malt might mature a bit quicker. Although it makes it sound like it will be a very limited release at least intially.

    Very attractive packaging bringing history into the present.

    Re: Five Fathers Pure Rye Malt Whiskey

    Thanks for the nice comments on the label. It is a one year old pure malted rye. As Tom says, it is young, but we were surprised at how quickly it matured in 53 gallon barrels. I won't say much about tasting notes as we prefer to let everyone give their own take, good, bad, or otherwise. At 110 proof it does have some spice to it for sure. The Five Fathers are our great great grandfather, H.E. Pogue I, the founder of the H.E. Pogue Distillery, then H.E. Pogue II, H.E. Pogue III, H.E. Pogue IV, and, just to be different, our father, John P. Pogue, Sr., who many of you may have met. The lower part of the label is taken from an old advertising poster from the late 1930s. It will be a limited offering with distribution in Kentucky to start, and is being released from the distillery next Wednesday, May 1. We will certainly have some at KBF in September as well. If I can navigate this I will post a picture of the bottle.
