Old Overholt Bottled In Bond Straight Rye Whiskey 750ml

SKU #1344221

Finally this great old Rye brand is back to its original strength. The famous Old Overholt name has been in existence since 1810. Founded by Henry Overholt, it was his son Abraham who built grand reputation of the Overholt name. Abraham's face adorns the bottle to this day. Rye whiskey reigned supreme in pre-prohibition America and Overholt was always considered one of the best. It was thanks to one of its shareholders and eventual owners, Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon that the distillery was able to acquire a license to continue selling whiskey during the dark days. The long slow decline of American rye whiskey didn't even stop the brand, which was eventually sold to Jim Beam in 1987. Production was moved from West Overton, Pennsylvania to Frankfort, KY and slowly the brand transitioned away from the 100 proof BIB designation. Modern Overholt is a two year old 80 proof product, a shadow over what it once was, but a solid work horse no doubt. The renewed demand for rye and a consistent interest in high proof spirits has encourage Beam to reaffirm Old Overholt's age old committment to quality. The result is an exceptionally well priced revision of an old classic, Bonded as it ought to be. Modern Overholt has always been a value play and the quality increase has pushed it to the top of the pile on those terms. It'll be hard to find a better rye for your dollar. Full of spice, mint and malt, but smooth, rich and easy to love. Perfect for a manhattan. A modern classic.

Heck yeah! A delicious, versatile, and AFFORDABLE rye to be taken seriously. Freshly baked sugar cookies, celery salt, kitchen herbs, and wintergreen on the nose. Great palate spice, very dry finish, makes a killer Old Fashioned. Trust me.

- 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.
