Light gold color. Aromas and flavors of orange blossom, honey, apricot stone, lime zest, caraway, albariño, and ripe sour cherry with a supple, vibrant, dryish light body and a graceful, compelling, medium-length finish. An eau-de-vie like Whiskey that sings with high notes of the rye grain; delicate and sophisticated.

Distilled from Rye Mash Whiskey

Distilled from Rye Mash Whiskey is a relatively arcane category, taking into effect only a few American whiskies with a bourbon mash bill but aged in barrels that are not new white American oak; these may have other non traditional aging or processing. Examples tend to be less complex than true bourbons, but these products can be crowd pleasers.
