  • Tasting Notes: It's still crazy to me that we're talking about Rye over 7 years old from Driftless. As their distillate has developed and continued to age, it's picking up a beautiful oak structure with layers of subtly integration barrel char that works so well. The nose on this rye is full of maple, sweet doughnut glaze, caramel candies and a pop of rye spice. The palate is rich and viscous, with a silky texture the betrays the proof a bit - I still place these in the 55% range blind. Caramel candies, cocoa, chocolate covered cherries, rye bread, a touch of ginger and a pop of clove come together for a decadent palate. Long finish that eases out slowly, driven by barrel char, root beer and toffee.
