Award: Winner of Gold Medal, 2020 American Craft Spirits Association
With this Whiskey, we continue our efforts to bring back a forgotten style of Rye Whiskey, Monongahela Rye, the gold standard of Pre-Prohibition Whiskey for nearly 200 years in America.
We age our Single Barrel Straight Rye a minimum of 4 years in new charred 53 gallon oak barrels. Bottled from a single barrel at 100 proof this Rye has the traditional rye flavors of dried tart cherries and stone fruit. These are complemented by deeper notes of caramel, chestnut, black tea and cedar, and rounded out with light vanilla, pepper, and apple. Mouthfeel is smooth, with a spicy pepper finish. What Scotch is to Scotland, this Monongahela Rye is to Western Pennsylvania.
Mash Bill: of 68% regional organic rye, 18% regional organic wheat and 14% organic malted barley.
Tasting Notes: Vanilla, pepper, apple
Aged: 4 years
750 mL / 100 PROOF (50% ABV)
