Jefferson’s Straight Rye Whiskey Finished in Cognac Casks


750ml, bottle

Jefferson's Straight Rye Whiskey Finished in Cognac Casks marries the classic rye spice with the smooth notes of cognac. Aged for at least 9 months in cognac casks, it delivers a complex and flavorful experience. Hints of orange, honey, and nutmeg complement the rye's peppery character, making it a perfect sipping whiskey.


On the nose, Jefferson’s Straight Rye Whiskey Finished in Cognac Casks offers a welcoming aroma that combines the classic rye spice with unexpected sweetness. Look for hints of cinnamon, a warming spice that complements the rye’s peppery character. Alongside the cinnamon, you might detect notes of honey, hinting at the influence of the cognac casks and promising a touch of sweetness on the palate.

The first sip delivers the rye’s signature spice, but it’s noticeably smoother than traditional rye whiskey. The cognac finish tames the initial peppery bite, giving way to flavors of nutmeg – a warm, slightly floral spice that adds complexity. Hints of citrus, like orange or peach, might also emerge, adding a touch of brightness and balancing the sweetness of the honey.

The finish is where this rye whiskey truly shines. It’s long and lingering, leaving a pleasant warmth on the tongue. The orange and honey notes from the nose and palate return, offering a delightful sweetness that lingers alongside a touch of tingling tannins, a subtle reminder of the oak barrel aging. The cognac influence is most evident here, providing a smooth and luxurious aftertaste.
