Dad's Hat Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey (750ml)
Pennsylvania used to be known for its rye whiskey and Bourbon. Today, it's known more for the old Michter's distillery that once produced legendary American booze. Mountain Laurel Spirits are hoping to change that with their new Dad's Hat rye whiskey, made from Pennsylvania-grown rye and distilled in Bristol. Aged in white oak, quarter cask barrels for at least six months, the Dad's Hat drinks very much in the style of Old World Spirits Gold Run, or the aged whiskies from 1512 Spirits here in SF. However, you get an entire 750ml bottle for $50, which makes it much more attractive for cocktail fans looking to get a bit looser with their pours. Light, clean, with gentle vanilla and plenty of pure rye flavor, Dad's Hat is one of the few new, small production whiskies that delivers value as well as quality. Made from 80% rye, 15% malted barley, and 5% malted barley, in the old Monongahela style that made the state famous.
