  • Intro:

    Said to be inspired by the luxurious Hollywood lifestyle (and recently served at Selena Gomez's birthday!), The Beverly High Rye is a blend of straight rye and straight bourbon whiskeys sourced from Iowa and Indiana. This release is bottled by Cedar Ridge Distillery in Iowa, and the brand plants a tree in partnership with Trees for the Future for every bottle that sells.

  • Nose:

    Young and fruity on the nose with banana bread, almonds and pecans, caramel and honey.

  • Taste:

    Moderate palate with a honey-forward profile. This tastes young but is full of banana, almond, walnut and pear. Light pepper and zest.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, hot and punchy and youthful but full of spice and tannin.

  • Overall:

    This is a young whiskey with promise, heavy on baking spice and oak with banana and fruits throughout. I feel like this is the first chapter of a brand whose story we’ll keep reading for years to come.
