RyeUnlike bourbon, rye whiskey can be made anywhere in the world. But if made in the US, the mash bill recipe must be at least 51% rye and it must be aged in new, charred oak barrels with no age requirement. Elsewhere, the rye whiskey will be made keeping the country of origin's rules regarding the recipe and minimum aging.

"Here’s something to check your pulse. An unabashed nose of white pepper, dill, horseradish, and brine. The dill and brine carry over to the palate making big splashes with wood spices. Although amongst these boisterous flavors, some sweet rye is sandwiched in the mid-palate. The spices crackle like fire long into the finish. Take a big pull of this after a few rounds of over-the-barrel arm wrestling."
