Koval White Whiskey Rye
Koval // Illinois, USA
Koval White Rye is distilled in Chicago, Illinois from 100% rye. It "barely [touches] the barrel before being bottled," resulting in a clear whiskey. It is bottled at 40% ABV.
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.
"Koval has created a pleasantly spicy unaged rye whiskey. Dry, but not harsh on the palate, it has a mild kick of black pepper, a touch of lemon zest, and a hint of vanilla. Though it's difficult to compare to a good aged rye, it's a solid contribution to the unaged whiskey category."
