    Seeing this bottle pop up on Distiller reminded that I have been working thru this bottle but had yet to review it! I quite enjoyed last year's release and so when this popped up at my local Costco for under $50 it was an instant buy (SRP is $59.99 for reference). So what is this release all about? It's essentially a small batch of MGP sourced rye barrels that are vatted and released at Cask Strength. Thankfully this release doesn't include the chemical additive there other releases currently do (and hence the Straight designation and why I buy it). Is it any good? Let's dive in: On the palette it's rich and pretty smooth given the proof. Classic MGP notes of candied ginger, clove, pepper, dill and some toffee and slight vanilla to offset the spice. Definitely spicier than last year's release. Give this one some time to oxidize as it definitely improves. For the price paid it's a solid buy. If you don't mind dill and like MGP Rye profile this is a definite buy for you. Cheers all!

    Nose : some signature dill pickle, grassy notes maybe a hint a oak Palate: it’s got a good amount of mint to it, tastes fairly young my guess is under 4yrs or right at that if, a little bit of rye spice and that grassy note again. The finish is long and minty as well Overall I’d give this one about a 81 it’s pretty young but well done. Sometimes a youthful rye hits the best notes. Although for the price point I’d rather have James e pepper rye or the James e pepper cask strength for a fraction of the price.

    Just a great smooth drink. The Rye has a great flavor and is not overwhelming. I drink Crown, Gentleman Jack, Eagle Rare, Makers Mark and Four Roses and would put this above a few of them. Just an all around good drink
