It's no secret that we love New Riff here. Though I have been hearing that some are not as smitten, I think this particular barrel has something for just about everyone. Selected by our own resident Kentuckian, Illya Haase, this explodes with enchanting aromas right from first pour. I honestly cannot stop smelling it, it's so pretty. Peach blossoms and candied citrus with a smattering of pepper and a dollop of sticky sugar greet you warmly like a group of old friends. On the palate, that same array of citrus lingers, joined by golden raisin, chocolate cherries, a hint of banana and crème brûlée. This definitely trends toward the savory, with perfectly toasted oak, cinnamon and clove present throughout, but it's lifted by sweetness and beautiful vanilla. I am consistently amazed at how much subtlety and complexity they can coax out of whiskey so young. I certainly can't argue with the results, though, especially when the product is so affordable. This should make everyone's short list this holiday season. Get yours before the rush, because this one will move quickly.

What a great day! Illya's New Riff barrel has arrived at last. Number 2055 comes in at 104.7 proof bottled from a Single Barrel of course. Cause if anyone is going to cut my whiskey it's gonna be me. So, why so excited? Well, there is a special place in my heart for New Riff. It is a stones throw from my old Kentucky home. Maybe that's why I love it so much, or maybe its the limestone water that runs through us, or MAYBE New Riff knows how to make frickin amazing Bourbons!! Golden copper in the glass makes me smile; I know this is not going to be some over oaked whiskey. Balance is the key to all things, my friends. Candy tangerines, vanilla and honeysuckle pop from the glass. Wonderful earth and spice, cause I am always a fan of high rye. I love that the spice of the rye balances the sweetness of the corn. Orange peel, cinnamon, butterscotch, apricots, honey, clove and mint. A warming, dry finish with layers of cinnamon and that rye spice to warm you with that signature "Kentucky Hug". This will be my bottle of choice for many years to come.
