Driftless Glen Young Rye Review

Driftless Glen Young Rye Review

Driftless Glen Young Rye has completely impressed me for a few reasons. First off, the whiskey is remarkably flavorful and aromatic for its youth. Secondly, they don’t try to hide what the product is, they put it directly in the name. Thirdly, I like the way they think. Their ethos and how they talk about… Continue!

High West A Midwinter Night’s Dram Act 3 Review

High West A Midwinter Night’s Dram Act 3 Review

Today we’re tasting the High West A Midwinter Night’s Dram Act 3 and comparing it to the High West A Midwinter Night’s Dram Act 2.9 which was reviewed yesterday. It seems like a minor jump, but each act represents a new batch and as such could potentially be quite different. Different casks of rye blended… Continue!

High West A Midwinter Night’s Dram is their traditional Rendezvous Rye that’s been finished in French Oak & ex-Port casks. If you’re not familiar with it, the traditional HWRR is a blend of 6-year-old MGP rye and 16-year-old Barton rye; both have a massive rye mashbill but lend different characteristics to the whiskey.

This was one of the last things Booker worked on before his passing in 2004 and comes from a mashbill that’s a lot higher in rye content than… Continue!

Corsair Ryemageddon is an interesting all rye whiskey made from 80% malted rye and 20% chocolate rye which is a toasted rye grain used to add roasty cocoa notes to anything they’re used in. I really enjoyed this 100% rye whiskey from the night we did the Corsair tasting, the way the rye character of this whiskey rolled… Continue!
