Triticale is what happens when a species of wheat and a species of rye are crossed together to form one grain, as was first practiced in late 19th century Scotland. The folks at Dry Fly in Washington state, led by Don Poffenroth and Kent Flieschmann, got their hands on some seeds and distilled it. It's perhaps the only whiskey on the market made from this rare hybrid seed.

Tasting Notes

"The idea was to create a whiskey that has the spiciness of rye and the sweeter softness of wheat. You can definitely taste both. In fact, it tastes like buttered wheat toast with cinnamon sugar on top! The rye aspect also brings a sharp ginger note, slightly overtaking the cereal quality of the wheat. A fun sip and a great one to suggest for something that's completely different."
