Silver Fox Rye
New Jersey, USA
This unaged rye is available in limited quantities and only at select bars or the Cooper River Distillery itself. It can also be purchased in an "age your own whiskey" kit put together by Cooper River. The whiskey is made from rye, corn, and barley and bottled at 86 proof.
WhiteDistilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.
"The first impressions of this unaged spirit are what you'd expect: somewhat astringent, sweet, lightly herbal. It calls to mind the experience of buying corn from a roadside stand. It's surprisingly oilier than anticipated. A touch of mint comes through the grain sugars with the strangest little hint of mocha that will keep you sipping--even if you're not a white whiskey fan."
