Cody Road Rye Whiskey
Cody Road // Iowa, USA
Two brothers Ryan and Garrett Burchett run the Mississippi River Distilling Co. Their whiskey is named after the famed Buffalo Bill Cody who was a fan of the ever-so- popular-for-the-times rye and as such, the brothers decided to age a 100% rye whiskey. With grain purchased solely from Dave and Jim Wherry in Fulton, IL Cody Road Rye takes a remarked leap in the opposite direction to most rye lovers, being a touch fruitier and floral than most of its competitors including Templeton.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"This is definitely a unique rye. Had I been in a blind tasting I probably would have called it a medium high-rye bourbon because the fruitiness in the mid-palate reminds me of the first bite into a fresh wild plum berry. Dryness in the back of the palate was reminiscent of persimmon peels. If you like a Makers Old Fashioned on the Rocks this is definitely a solid break from your Happy Hour norm’. "
