New Riff Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey comes from Newport, Kentucky. It's a strong rye whiskey made mostly from rye grain with a bit of malted rye thrown in. They age it for at least four years in new oak barrels that have been burned on the inside. This type of whiskey is called "bottled in bond," which means it meets certain quality rules, like being aged in a special government warehouse for four years. This results in a bold and spicy rye whiskey with notes of cinnamon, clove, and pepper, balanced by hints of vanilla and caramel.

Description

Nose

Initial: Spicy and assertive with a wave of black pepper. Some reviewers also detect hints of mint and fresh herbs.

Secondary: As you delve deeper, notes of vanilla emerge, balanced by citrusy orange peel and a touch of oak.

Palate

Initial: The bold rye spice hits first, with flavors of cinnamon, clove, and black pepper tingling the tongue.

Mid-palate: Sweetness starts to emerge, with hints of vanilla, toffee, and caramel adding complexity. Some reviewers also pick up on a subtle coconut note.

Body: The mouthfeel is described as medium-full, offering a satisfying weight without being heavy.

Finish

Initial: The rye spice returns with a flourish, lingering alongside brown sugar and a touch of dark chocolate.

Lingering Notes: A mineral-grassy rye character develops, fading slowly and leaving a pleasant warmth.
