Tasting Notes

"Sonoma County Distilling's Cherrywood Rye (batch #2) combines an unusual mashbill with an even more unique smoke flavor. The spice of rye combines with heavy smoke contributed by cherrywood-smoked barley bringing with it notes of dried fruit and BBQ. Robust vanilla helps take the edge off the stronger flavors of the spirit. Smoke in spirits can be divisive, and this rye probably isn't for everyone. But those who enjoy a smoky profile and American styles of whiskey will find a lot to like here."
