Re:Find // California, USA
Re:Find is a line of spirits intent on finding existing products such as using free-run juice often discarded to produce a grape spirit for their gin and vodkas. In the case of their rye, they obtain the base ingredients from neighboring SLO Brew in San Luis Obispo though they ferment, distill, age, and bottle at their Re:Find Distillery in Paso Robles. Aged for an undisclosed amount of time in 5 gallon barrels and bottled at 90 proof. Sold in 375ml sized bottles. Review is for 2nd batch.
RyeMash bill at least 51% rye; aged in new, charred oak barrels.
Cask Typenew, charred American oak
"Intense notes of dark cherry and dark rye on the nose with just a touch of green herbaceousness and orange tea. On the palate, the whiskey enters your mouth smooth and has a decent weight to it, but finishes bone dry. The finish shows a touch of vanilla and cinnamon with just a bit of char smoke. The nose alone is enough of an enticement to seek out a bottle of the limited supply of rye; find a specialty retailer in California for your needs."
