Tom's Foolery Bottled in Bond Single Barrel #150 Ohio Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml) (Previously $50)

SKU #1388308

Since Tom and Lianne Herbruck founded Tom's Foolery distillery in northern Ohio in 2008, their products have become benchmarks in the ever expanding world of craft whiskey and brandy. The rye might be their most exciting offering. This single barrel #150 was distilled in February 2013 from 70% winter rye and 30% malted rye. The barrel was bottled in bond in October 2018 at 100 proof. It represents a nearly lost style of rye, more intense than most modern rye, with tons of minty green complexity, grassy dried herbs and spicy black pepper. While the powerful herbs and spice dominate, the whole package remains relatively sweet thanks to more than five years in new charred oak.

A very interesting and expressive nose on this rye, and a testament to why most producers color their rye bottles green. Herbal notes of fennel fronds, dill, cola nut wafted out of the glass and just made me think of rolling hills of soft grass. The palate was not at all what I was expecting; very soft and smooth with a sweet brown sugar note- almost giving off a bourbon quality mixed with a soft rye. The finish was long with spiced notes of nutmeg and cinnamon.

This classic and delicious rye has a lot to offer. The nose is a sweet inviting mixture of grains and spice.In the mouth this theme continues, wrapped in a full bodied and juicy whiskey.With a little water this single Barrel becomes creamy and rich with a nice long finish. This selection is good with and without water and worth taking a look at.

I used try to look for something from Tom that approximated what you'd expect to get out of Kentucky, but after tasting the 100% ryes that Tom was making I changed my tune. This is is a blend of 70% winter rye and 30% malted rye. The result is one of the headiest and most out there flavor profiles for any whiskey we've ever sold. Out of control aromatics right out of the bottle of fresh mint, pine forest, wet pavement and something slightly barnyardy. The palate is big dry spicy monster with a powerful earthiness and the mint taking over on the finish. This one is not for the faint of heart, but for anyone who knows they love powerful rye or wants to experience what pre-prohibition might have tasted like, this is the a great move. The quality of the whiskey is undeniable even if it might be too much for some to handle.

The healthy balance of malted rye gives this a completely different profile than most rye on the market. The nose is something special! It's green and herbal and sweet and yeasty all at the same time. It's like a rising loaf of rye bread on the counter while the baker toasts herbs to crust a freshly baked foccacia. The palate is spicy and darker than expected from the nosing. The sweet backbone of oak fans out into a flourish of candied spice and rolling hills of sweet grass.

United States

- 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.
