  • Intro:

    This is a single barrel of rye distilled at Driftless Glen and selected by Mythical Hydra-tion. This was dumped from Barrel #186 and was bottled at bottle proof with no filtering. Let's dive in.

  • Nose:

    Rich berry, blueberry mainly, some fresh cut oak, honey, lavender, hint of orange peel, light jasmine. Fruity, herbal, but not minty, peppery or dill forward.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate, with some welcome richness. Lovely raspberry, honey, blueberry, light caramel note. Touch of pepper. Medium mouth feel. Heat is a hair forward, but well behaved.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, bit of heat, but nice oak component. Fresh baked bread, almost a sourdough quality, laced with vanilla bean, tobacco, bold rye spice and some blueberry preserve.

  • Overall:

    Unique, very off profile for a rye in general, interesting and complex. I’m a fan of this one, and it’s really enjoyable to be watching these barrels gain a bit of age each time I take a dive back in to taste them.

  • Score:

    6
