Distilled by Woodinville Whiskey Company in Washington State, this release is a distillery exclusive and features a high proof rye. Released without an age statement, but featuring a cask strength bottling proof of 116.62 proof, this release took some time on an airplane to track down. Let's get to it.
Spicy pepper, pear, peach and honey. Rising sourdough, toffee, cream.
Rich palate, some heat but not bad. Crisp and loaded with brown sugar, apple and spicy white pepper.
Long finish that leaves no doubt this is rye. Bold and spic, more pepper and spice than the palate here.
Overall, this is quite nice. An older single barrel might really pop, but this is an excellent demonstration of what WWC is capable of, and is paving the way to a flavorful future.
