Description

The Chicken Cock Cotton Club 20 Year Old Rye is a crown jewel in the world of rye whiskey. Bottled by Grain & Barrel Spirits, this limited release (around 9,570 bottles) boasts a unique heritage. This particular rye reflects that history, offering a 20-year-aged Canadian rye whiskey with a distinct character.

Aromatic Allure

Crack the seal and you’ll be greeted by a surprisingly sweet and inviting nose. Unlike the bold spice often found in American ryes, Cotton Club leans towards honeyed notes, complemented by the richness of butter cream. Hints of lavender add a touch of floral elegance, while a gentle whisper of white pepper and orange peel awakens the senses. This initial sweetness is a delightful departure from the norm, piquing your curiosity for the sip to come.

A Taste of Time

The first taste might surprise you. The initial burst of flavor is more muted than the vibrant nose suggests. But don’t be discouraged! Give it a moment, and the rye’s complexity starts to unfold. Honey re-emerges, mingling with a wave of peppery spice and a surprising minty character. This unexpected hint of mint adds a fascinating intrigue to the experience. As the flavors dance on your palate, notes of vanilla and molasses emerge, adding depth and richness.

A Lingering Legacy

The finish is where the 20 years of aging truly shine. It’s long and satisfying, leaving a lasting impression on your taste buds. The initial sweetness gives way to a delightful dryness, accented by notes of oak and a touch of floral character. Hints of pepper and spice linger, reminding you of the rye’s backbone. The mouthfeel is luxurious, with a buttery smoothness that complements the overall experience.
