SALTY DOG Cask Strength Rye Whiskey
Mash bill 86% Wisconsin Rye, 14% Malted Barley. Not for the faint of heart, this rye is a tribute to the power and depth of a grain-forward rye whiskey. It was purposefully aged only a year and seven months so that the spice of the rye wasn’t overtaken by the sweetness of the barrel. At full strength this whiskey will, as Head Distiller Edd puts it, “stomp on your tongue, but in a good way”. You can also experiment with adding water to it to see how it tastes at different proofs or make a mighty strong Manhattan with it. Nose: Black tea, plums, eucalyptus and clove Taste: Hot peppers, dried fruits, baking spices, and dark chocolate.
