  • Intro:

    A blend of primarily Indiana Rye, with some KY and TN components mixed in. This 4-10yr blend is bottled at cask strength - 58.12% for this batch. Available for $55 or so in a wide release.

  • Nose:

    Powerful brown sugar, some mint and herbal spearmint. Toffee, a bit of pepper and orange peel. Bright, sweet, complex.

  • Taste:

    Zesty on the palate - a bit more oak than expected. Complex and enjoyable, there is a ton of pepper, clove, rye spice and maple at first, with some fruity undertone developing with time. Plum, orange peel, a hint of pear. Spice gives way to sweet with extended time on the palate.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, the rye spice regains grip once more. Gone is the gentle fruit - pepper, clove, and mint remain with a healthy dose of maple.

  • Overall:

    Excellent, from tip to tail. Stellum Spirits first Rye blend is on the money. This is the rye that craft drinkers everywhere need, especially when it can be had for $60 or under.
