Mississippi River Distilling Company has this seasonal rye coming to Binny's.

Re: "...The spirit is 100% rye and was aged over charred oak and then finished in used bourbon barrels,” remarks owner/distiller Ryan Burchett."

Q: Age over charred oak? Similar to JD with the rye poured over a bed of

charred oak?

Finished in used bourbon barrels...how may uses? For how long?

I like the idea of local grain. local milling etc. but I wonder if the end result holds up. Anybody tried this one?

Quick question. This was something that came up on Jason's blog. When creating a whiskey, most producers add malted barley for it's enzymes that aid in fermentation of the yeast. With 100% rye, how is this achieved?

Great info. I was wondering -why not malted rye? Answered: Hiram Walker does employ it.
