Corsair // Tennessee, USA
The folks at Corsair, Darek Bell and Andrew Webber, are known for having kind of a maverick approach to whiskey, with lots of experimental releases that often stray way outside tradition. Ryemageddon is their aged rye (though with no statement), using the Wry Moon recipe of malted and chocolate rye as well as red wheat.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
"Reminds me of Mexican chocolate - rich milk chocolate, spicy cinnamon and clove, a bit of hot pepper. The cereal graininess is very present on the nose and palate, giving it a lot of weight. It's a bit young and brash, but also fun and spicy, like 2nd generation punk rock."
