Distilling the first rye whiskey in the state of Pennsylvania since 1989, this is made in the traditional Monongahela-style (that is to say, with a very high rye content and no corn). The mash bill is comprised of local Pennsylvania grains: 80% rye, 15% barley malt, 5% rye malt. It is aged in 15 gallon white oak quarter-casks from 6-9 months.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma is quite robust and spice filled, both from the grain and the wood. There is a touch of cherry juice and caramel found as well. Cherry notes continue on the palate, but an herbal and grassy component takes over, though this is not unwelcome. The finish is dry with a slight prickle, and has a nice tangy quality to it. Those looking for a sweet whiskey should look elsewhere."
