New Riff Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a high-rye bourbon known for its full-bodied, spicy character. Aged for at least four years in new charred oak barrels, it offers a complex and flavorful drinking experience.


New Riff Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey isn’t your typical bourbon. This award-winning spirit, crafted by a young Kentucky distillery, boasts a high-rye mash bill, setting it apart from the wheatier bourbons of the region. The result? A full-bodied and undeniably spicy experience that pushes the boundaries of classic bourbon.

Visually, New Riff presents a stunning deep amber color, rich and unfiltered, hinting at the depth of flavor within. On the nose, a wave of sweetness greets you first, with aromas of butterscotch and vanilla, intertwined with the fresh oak from its time in charred barrels. But then comes the signature rye spice, subtle hints of clove and cinnamon that pique your curiosity.

The initial taste unveils the authentic essence of New Riff. The mouthfeel is broad and luxurious, coating your tongue with a wave of sweet vanilla. But don’t be fooled – the rye quickly asserts itself, bringing a delightful spiciness with notes of pepper, cinnamon, and even a touch of mint. Underlying these primary flavors are hints of dark berry fruits, adding a surprising layer of complexity.

The finish is where New Riff truly shines. It’s long and warming, with the rye spice lingering alongside hints of white pepper and clove. The oak influence from the barrels becomes more apparent here, adding a touch of dryness that balances the sweetness perfectly.
