Alcohol/vol 43%
Proof 86.00
Rye inspired by Old World barrel-aging traditions. This 86-proof 12 year-old Rye Whiskey is a marriage of whiskeys aged in New American Oak and ingeniously finished in Port (7%,) French Sauternes (30%,) and Madeira casks (63%). We've taken the elements that are most quintessential in an American rye - boldness and character - and fused them with the elegance and grace of an 18 year old Scotch. Aromas or caramel, vanilla, and winter fruit. Rye spice, apricots, plums, raisins, dates, and honey on the palate. Dark chocolate, winter fruit, caramel, and vanilla on the finish.

Why aren't more spirits aged in former Madeira casks? This bold, flavorful bottling is dark amber in the glass, featuring delicious gingerbread and spice cake notes, leading into honey, caramel and sherry, and finishing long with juicy orange plus clove, cinnamon and cayenne heat. With a little water to tame and soften that alcohol fire, it's delicious as a sipping whiskey. Made with 12-year-old whiskey distilled in Indiana, then aged and bottled in Vermont.
