  • Age:

  • Intro:

    This is a Stoli release of an unknown sourced rye. It is marked Batch 001 because, like Kentucky Owl Bourbon, Im sure there will be future manic panic releases. This saw a very wide release in the US, though, which is promising. It is 11 years old and bottled at cask strength. Lets dive in.

  • Nose:

    Molasses, clove, allspice, sweet brown sugar. There is faint minty spearmint, but no dill. Faintly herbal.

  • Taste:

    Medium mouthfeel, lots of herbal character. Vanilla, faint spearmint, clove and spice. Not too sweet, some mild heat.

  • Finish:

    Short to medium in length, surprising for the proof. No heat, though. Mildly herbal spice, dry oak and pepper. Only faint sweetness.

  • Overall:

    This is definitely not an MGP sourced rye, but it leans towards the herbal, minty, spicy rye profile rather than something more bourbon like. This isnt bad, I think it says a bit about the mashbill and we can make some shoddy guesses about producer, but its a well done rye. Not super remarkable, but also not lacking, either.

  • Score:
