Dad's Hat Pennsylvania White Rye
Dad's Hat // Pennsylvania, USA
This is the unaged version of their rye whiskey with a mashbill comprising of local Pennsylvania grains: 80% rye, 15% barley malt, 5% rye malt. It is distilled in their 500 gallon pot stills and is filtered, and bottled at 100 proof.
WhiteDistilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.
"The aroma is heavy on dried herbs and spicy, peppery rye. A touch sweet on the palate, the whiskey continues with dried herbs but adds a touch of lemon zest, anise, and fresh grass on the finish. Retro-nasally, you'll get a little black cherry. Adding water softens the edges, but is not necessary to enjoy."
