Double Rye is a blend of two straight rye whiskeys: A 16 year old from the Barton Distillery in Kentucky with a mashbill of 53% rye, 37% corn, 10 barley and a 2 year old from LDI in Indiana with a mashbill of 95% rye and 5% barley.
Huge dill pickle brine on the nose. Super rye/anise seed and the palate is more of the same. Some oak tones it down after a few sips but the pickles are really heavy. Worth tasting and something for the rye croud I think but for me it is just a taster.
NOSE Big notes of rye spice, maple, dark fruit, leather, pepper, caramel and a bit of baking spice.
Rye, dark sweets, wood, dark fruit, leather, baking spice, pepper and a bit of earth and tobacco.
FINISH Nice long finish full of rye, wood, caramel and a hint of tobacco.
Notes will depend on which era you're drinking from. Original batches have a noticably higher amount of old rye in them (like the batch 7 these notes come from). Newer batches have more young rye and tend to be more bitter and sharp. The old batches are quite good.
