New Riff opened in 2014 with Brian Sprance as the Head Distiller. The New Make Series is their take on traditional Kentucky white dog whiskey. Both the New Make Rye & Bourbon Mash are intended to show the terroir in their grain and water source. This Rye was made with the help of consulting Master Distiller Larry Ebersold.

Tasting Notes

"This is a bit of a late starter, so let it open up a bit. The nose is a little hot but inviting. Warm vanilla pudding with ground cloves and a toss of confectioners sugar. The initial attack on the palate is fairly neutral with an oily texture. The oil thins out by the mid-palate and strong salinity acts as a bridge to ground coriander and rye on the finish."
