Duke Founder's Rye 98 takes rye whiskey to new heights with its unique double-cask aging process. This rye is meticulously crafted and then double-barreled – first in American oak barrels, then finished in French oak casks that previously held prestigious Napa Cabernets and Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The result is a complex and flavorful rye whiskey unlike any other.

Description

  • Expect a symphony of flavors that goes beyond the usual rye spice profile.
  • The initial notes offer a cherry oak influence, hinting at the first aging in American oak barrels. Imagine a touch of maraschino cherry and a dry, slightly sweet oakiness.
  • This is followed by a wave of rye spice, with hints of black pepper and a touch of cinnamon. However, the rye spice is not overpowering, thanks to the double-aging process.
  • The French oak casks, previously used for high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon, contribute notes of dark fruit like plum or blackberry. They might also introduce a hint of chocolate or vanilla.

Notes

Commencing with cherry oak, almond, and vanilla, the middle to finish with a hint of anise, notes of woody spices, and smooth smokiness lead to a warming finish. This bourbon is the benchmark of what wine-rested spirits should aspire to be.
