Ross & Squibb Distillery (previously known as Midwest Grain Products of Indiana) announced the launch of Rossville Union 2022 Barrel Proof, its annual limited-release straight rye whiskey.
The rye features a medley of straight-rye mash bills, distilled by one of the largest producers of rye whiskey in America, the flavor profile includes aromas of rye spice, vanilla, caramel and oak. There are forward notes of caramel and vanilla, continuing onto baking spices and chocolate, then a finish of rye and a hint of mint, according to the distillery.

Coming in at 117.2 proof, this 3,000-case release is set to reach retail shelves across the country starting this month.
