Jefferson 10 Year Old Straight Rye (750ml)

SKU #1075089 Whisky Advocate

 A 100% straight rye from Canada. This is curiously similar to (and more affordable than) WhistlePig rye, which is also a 100% rye, 10 year old Canadian whisky, but at a slightly higher 50% ABV. (Neither whiskey identifies its origin.) It oozes spice (mint, cinnamon, hint of nutmeg) balanced by layers of sweetness (honeyed vanilla, caramel), with nutty toffee emerging on the finish.

K&L Notes

This was originally sourced from the same distillery as Whistlepig's Canadian rye, this 10 year old from Jefferson's is half the price and half as rich. Now it has lost the import statement, which is either a simple administrative change or perhaps they've added a bit of indiana straight rye. Regardless of the provenance, this is more supple than anything currently available from the LDI-purchased ryes (Willett, Bulleit, Templeton, Redemption, etc) and more peppery than anything older. While it drinks nicely as a sipper, this is the high-end cocktail mixer we've been waiting for during the great rye whiskey shortage. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
