Pikesville Straight Kentucky Rye (750ml) (Previously $50)

SKU #1213349 92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Look for a rich caramel-maple aroma and spice-forward flavor profile, showing allspice and clove, with a layer of vanilla underneath. Dilution tames this rye to show more vanilla, accented with dry touches of oak, leather and cocoa. Aged at least six years. Sip or mix. (KN) Inner quote mark (7/2016)

Whisky Advocate

Outer quote mark Heaven Hill’s 80-proof standard Pikesville is a summer favorite, so I was eager to try this. A woody depth to it at 6 years old: 110 proof-hot, stewed plum and horehound candy, and sizzling rye spice behind it. It's a jawbreaker: full and hot in the mouth, with sweet grassy spice, bitter rye grain as it progresses, and crackling sugar near the end, just before it all smooths into a savory layered finish. Exciting ride, great ending. (LB, Fall 2015) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

First produced in Maryland in the 1890s, this brand moved to Kentucky after Prohibition and is now operated by Heaven Hill. Whisky Advocate named it "Distillery of the Year" and "at the spearhead of the rye resurgence" in 2011. Tasting notes from the producer: "Dusty cocoa notes with oaky smoke underneath. Dry and spicy, with honeyed rye and cloves. Soft vanilla and baking spices."
