Sagamore Spirit Calvados Finish Rye Whiskey

$75.00

Size
750ml, bottle

Sagamore Spirit Calvados Finish Rye Whiskey elevates classic Maryland rye with a unique twist. This rye whiskey is aged 4-6 years and finished in Calvados casks, previously used to age French apple brandy. The result? A rye whiskey with a captivating balance of spicy rye notes and sweet, fruity undertones of baked apple, cinnamon, and honey.

Description

Sagamore Spirit Calvados Finish Rye Whiskey offers a delightful departure from traditional rye. The rye grain itself provides a base of bold spice and pepper, balanced by the sweetness imparted by the Calvados casks. The initial aroma is inviting, filled with the warmth of cinnamon and baking spices, alongside hints of honey and ripe apples.

The first sip reveals a surprising smoothness, despite the rye’s inherent spiciness. The rye character peeks through with notes of clove and peppery spice, but it’s intertwined with delightful flavors of baked apple, pear, and a touch of honey. Hints of vanilla and subtle floral notes add another layer of complexity.

The finish is where the Calvados influence truly shines. A lingering sweetness of apple and honey complements the fading peppery spice, leaving a warm and inviting conclusion. This rye whiskey is a perfect example of innovation, offering a unique and well-balanced flavor profile for rye whiskey enthusiasts and newcomers alike.
