RyeUnlike bourbon, rye whiskey can be made anywhere in the world. But if made in the US, the mash bill recipe must be at least 51% rye and it must be aged in new, charred oak barrels with no age requirement. Elsewhere, the rye whiskey will be made keeping the country of origin's rules regarding the recipe and minimum aging.

"This grand dame of a release is less robust than the 6 and 7 year old barrel proof releases, and shows more elegant restraint. It's also less fruity and more herbal, with sage and dill combining with caramel, oak and leather. The weight is also more hefty, coating the palate and lingering in the finish. Like the coolest old ladies you've met in life, it's brazen, spirited, somewhat bitter, funky and demanding of your attention. It's also old and quite rare."
