Widow Jane Rye American Oak Aged offers a rye whiskey experience that's both approachable and undeniably flavorful. Aged for a minimum of four years, this rye uses a high-rye mash bill for a spicy kick balanced by warm notes and a hint of sweetness. Non-chill filtered and proofed with the distillery's signature mineral water, it boasts a unique character perfect for sipping or crafting cocktails.

Description

Aroma

Initial Impression: Look for a spicy rye forwardness with a peppery kick. This is balanced by a pleasant sweetness reminiscent of clover honey and perhaps a hint of vanilla extract. Some reviewers detect a subtle floral note like lavender or chamomile.

Deeper Sniffs: As you delve deeper, expect hints of warm baking spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and maybe even a touch of clove. The American oak barrels contribute subtle woody notes like toasted oak and maybe even a hint of vanilla bean.

Palate

First Sip: The rye spice hits the tongue first, offering a burst of peppery warmth. The high-rye mash bill ensures this is a prominent flavor. Don’t worry, it’s not overwhelming! Underlying this spice, you might detect a subtle sweetness of brown sugar or honey, providing a nice counterpoint.

Midpalate: As the whiskey opens up, the warm baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg emerge, adding complexity to the flavor profile. Hints of vanilla and toasted oak from the aging become more noticeable, creating a smooth and well-rounded character.

Finish

Lingering Flavors: The rye spice gradually fades, leaving a pleasant warmth on the palate. Notes of toasted oak and vanilla linger alongside a touch of honey sweetness. Some reviewers detect a hint of citrus peel or even a subtle floral note that carries over from the aroma.
