Distilled by MGP, aged at least two years and bottled at 100 proof, this is the standard rye whiskey from Hotel Tango.
Light and sweet, full of maple, dill, spearmint, pepper and a touch of honey. It’s MGP, baby! That herball dill note walks from herbal to minty but has plenty of sweet maple to back it up.
Light on oak, this is young for sure. Some oak, honey, maple and toffee. Light dill and a big minty note. Moderate mouthfeel, a touch spirity.
Short finish, quite hot, with a punch of dill and spearmint.
Hotel Tango Rye isn’t the brand's best showing. It’s adequate and proofed nicely for cocktails, but similar MGP stock seems to have a better balance of dill to oak and a bit more depth.
