Ri1 Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey
This is a pretty nice tasting rye. Taste seems subtle, but well put together. We could see this being better for sipping than mixing because of the subtleness, but (ri)1 certainly wouldn’t make an offensive cocktail. Like most lower percentage straight ryes, this shares some Bourbon character along with a good rye presence.
- Aroma: Floral. Mint. caramel, cinnamon, charred oak. Spicy, but light.
- Flavor: Evergreen, mint. Caramel and vanilla. Nuttiness what seems Beam yeast. Bubblegum. Nice sweetness. Spicy zip. Chocolate barrel char. Light in flavor. Mild astringency in the finish.
