$55.99

Size

This Milam & Greene Port Cask Finished Rye whiskey marries the spicy rye grain with the sweet and fruity notes of Port casks. Crafted in Texas, it starts with Indiana rye whiskey that's finished in aged Port casks for a unique and flavorful spirit. You can savor it straight, with ice, or mixed into a cocktail.

Description

Aroma

Initial Impression: Look for a subtle and intriguing nose. Some tasters pick up on distant scents of a pine forest, with a hint of earthiness.

Deeper Sniffs: As you delve deeper, notes of mulled wine emerge, hinting at the Port cask influence. This might present as a mix of warm spices like cinnamon and clove, alongside dried fruits like raisin and plum.

Palate

First Sip: The rye character comes to the forefront initially, offering a spicy and peppery tingle on the tongue. This is classic rye whiskey, but it’s softened by the cask finishing.

Midpalate: As the rye spice subsides, the Port wine influence takes center stage. Expect a wave of sweetness, with notes of buttery cinnamon, vanilla, and perhaps even a hint of dark chocolate. These notes create a decadent and smooth mouthfeel.

Finish: The rye spice makes a return on the finish, bringing a pleasant warmth that lingers on the tongue. Hints of the Port’s dark fruit character might linger as well, creating a complex and balanced aftertaste.
