Corsair Experimental Kentucky Rye Whiskey 750ml

SKU #1063911

Once again we'll be the only store in California to land any of Corsair's delicious young rye. We didn't bother with an exclusive label this time around, but the whiskey is still exclusively ours. This was a huge success for us last time around and was a surprise favorite of many a customer. Here are the notes: The American craft whiskey movement is starting to gain some serious steam and we're happy to be helping its momentum. We've had to search high and low to find the tastiest, most exclusive products available and this time we wound up at one of Kentucky's newest distilleries. Available only at K&L in California, this whiskey is from a 100% rye mashbill giving the flavor a true injection of peppery spice. Because rye whiskey needs legally to be only 51% rye, most distilleries lower their production costs by adding corn and barley to the remaining 49%. To get a pure rye spirit is very rare and to get one with any kind of age on it is even more difficult. While young, the Corsair has really taken to the new oak barrels and explodes with vanilla, cherries, and a touch of smoke. -David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer

This epic rye caused me to have a serious flashback to my childhood. Wait, it's not as scary as it sounds, and the more that I thought about it the more that it makes sense. I used to feed my horses these small treats made from toasted oats, alfalfa, and molasses. I even got a taste of carrots, or maybe that was just my imagination. Either way, this is hands down the best rye that I have ever tasted. Although the label advises that you can make cocktails with this, there is no way that I would mess with the intriguing flavor. Incredibly complex, and stunningly smooth with charred vanilla on the "finish", I have to say that I was shocked to discover that Rye could be this good!

- 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.
