Rock Hill Farms "Rye Recipe" High Rye Mashbill Kentucky Straight Bourbon 750ml
*Classic/Highest Recommendation* The nosing passes pick up seductive aromatic notes of toasted walnut, dried red fruits, marzipan, black pepper, spices, cocoa and marshmallow. Entry is zesty, fruity, candied and almost Sherry-like; the midpalate bursts with flavors of cocoa, dark chocolate, chocolate covered almond, coffee, tobacco and dark caramel. Ends smooth, silky, toffee sweet and honeyed. Wow.
This is what Buffalo Trace refers to as their "Rye Recipe" Bourbon. It is not a Straight Rye Whiskey, but instead a Straight Bourbon Whiskey with a larger proportion of rye grain than usual. Basically, a rye-heavy mashbill rather than a corn-heavy mashbill. It is still more than 51% corn and therefore is technically still a Bourbon and not a Rye. Please do not confuse this product with a Straight Rye Whiskey! (David Othenin-Girard, K&L Spirits Buyer)
