Blended American Whiskey
Reilly's Whiskey // USA
The whiskey brand is based around the fictional character Reilly, a lad who had lost an eye, taken a life and been sold in a poker game by the age of 2. Later he organized the Black Eye Society to supply whiskey disguised in milk bottles during Prohibition. Mother's Milk is an American blended whiskey made in the Irish tradition, with a small portion of unaged whiskey mixed in with the aged. The mash bill consists of 75% corn, 21% rye and 4% malted barley.
Blended American WhiskeyStraight whiskey(s) must comprise at least 20% of the blend with the remainder comprised of whisky of any type or a grain neutral spirit or a combination of the two.
"This is a very easy drinking whiskey, with smooth vanilla, red apple and rich caramel flavors. Nuances of sweet spice, brown sugar and toasted oak develop upon further sipping. A slight burn in the finish reminds us that lads like Reilly like to go out swinging!"
