New Riff Rye

Recommended Posts

I saw bottles of this at a local yesterday. The label said it is bonded, at least 4 yrs old, and the mashbill is 95%rye, 5% malted rye, non chill filtered. Of course I was super intrigued, but at $47, I didn't pull the trigger. Anyone tried this?

 

I can say this unequivocally, 95% rye in the mashbill  from a famous Indiana distillery is my all-time favorite rye. I know I am going back and buying a bottle.

I bought a bottle. It is, how should I put this, not stellar. I was anticipating a really strong rye flavor. Didn't get it. Lacks in depth for me.

 

It is a little smoother than a Bulleit rye and delicate on the alcohol side.  Missing the floral notes of a good rye.

 

Won't buy that one again. You try, you learn.
