A limited release of Rendezvous® Rye finished in port and French oak barrels.
This is a very unique rye whiskey that tastes like the flavors of Christmas.
The name is a play on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. When we first tasted this special whiskey, it seemed perfect for a really cold night, hence, A Midwinter Night’s Dram.
Nose: The rye forms a beautiful base of vanilla, caramel and cinnamon; the port barrels enhance with plums and dried fruits; the French oak provides a spice accent.
Taste: A proper Christmas plum pudding with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits, and crème anglaise.
Finish: Long and fruity
Class & Type: A blend of straight rye whiskeys, finished in port and French oak barrels.
Mashbill: 6-year old straight rye whiskey: 95% rye and 5% barley malt. The 16-year old straight rye: 80% rye, 10% corn, 10% barley malt.
