The unique named whiskey, pronounced "Rye One", is a rye whiskey from Beam Global. Released in the fall of 2008, it is comprised of a blend of rye whiskeys, with the youngest being 4 1/2 years of age. It is bottled at a respectable 92 proof and has quite the eye-catching stark label.

Tasting Notes

"The spice notes are quite pronounced on the nose and in fact are a bit prickly. Once you jump that hurdle, you'll discover a sticky sweet and vanilla'd underlining. The rye is on the thin side and bitter and dry with a bit of leather on the palate. As you exhale, you'll find lots of char smoke and red apple skins. This is a decent rye, but there are older (and better) whiskeys on the market sold for much less."
