Excerpt: Ingram River Aged Straight Whiskey is not the most complex whiskey out there, however, it does have a very enjoyable mouthfeel and an impressively long finish. For being quite young at just 3-years of age, Ingram seems to be onto something with their “hyper-charged” floating rickhouse aging technique
Excerpt: This is one of my favorite tastings. I’ve worked through other, more expensive straight whiskeys with less enjoyable outcomes and I would put O.H. Ingram River Aged near the top of my list for the year.

Distilled at MGP, aged at least 3 years, and made up of a blend of their bourbon and rye, OH Ingram Straight Whiskey is another release matured on their floating barge structure. A unique look at a new take on whiskey, this particular bottling is 64% rye, which should be a pretty interesting tasting. Let’s dig in.
Honey, caramel, praline and brown sugar. A bit of spice, some pepper, a nice pop of oak. Sweet and dessert.
Medium mouth feel on the palate. Cream, honey, brown sugar. Some cinnamon, nutmeg, big rye spice. A fun combination of notes with the rye working nicely here.
Long finish, brown sugar, pepper, rye spice and clove.
Overall - pretty nice. Good oak structure throughout and tasting a bit older than the rye. Fun stuff, and a good showing that a fun story doesn’t preclude quality whiskey.
