A Rye to die for.

You remember Michael Myers. Masked face, coveralls, chases Jamie Lee Curtis around with a knife? Well, this one has nothing to do with any of that. This Michael Meyers was a photographer working in New York City. But before that, he was a country boy raised in the rolling, Whiskey-soaked hills of Tennessee and Georgia. After the events of 9/11 he left the big city and returned to the country — this time the foothills of the Rocky Mountains at the edge of Colorado Springs. In 2011, he built his first still using old photographic copper plates from his previous life and started making Whiskey. And to carry forward the character of his new country home the small-batch Whiskeys from Distillery 291 are finished with wood staves found in the mountains above his home. He calls it, "Handmade the Colorado Way."

His flagship expression — the Small Batch Colorado Rye Whiskey — is crafted using a signature mash bill of malted rye and corn, pot-distilled, aged for at least a year in American white oak barrels, then finished with toasted Colorado aspen staves they source from their neighbor. The fashion-photographer-turned-whiskey-maker sure is proving all those doubting Toms wrong — this release alone has won several gold medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and World Whiskies Awards, among others.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Dark brown

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The nose is super-rich with dark chocolate, dried fruit, apricots, raspberries, and a touch of spice, especially cinnamon.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Intense, well-balanced, and unique, this rye has notes of salted chocolate, mint, oak, maple, and baking spices on the palate.

The finish is long and a rich sweetness lingers along with pleasant dark chocolate overtones. 
Ratings & Reviews
My first try I didn’t really like it. Then I tried it on ice and it really changed it for me and liked it. Not what I expected for a rye but it was good with ice.
This bottle smells and tastes like funky moldy Aspen. Maybe I got a bad bottle but for what I spent this is the worst bottle I have ever purchased.
Appearance: Color is amber, decent legs... Nose: Aspen, bread dough, cinnamon, rye spice. Unique but still definitely Rye Whiskey. Maybe a little aspen heavy, but unique and great nose... Palate: Cinnamon, rye spice, aspen (I’ve never tasted it but it tastes just like it smells), minty/herbal background. Unique and flavorful... Mouthfeel: Tongue-coating... Finish: Linger of the aspen and rye spice... Overall: The most unique Rye I’ve tasted, but maintains it’s Rye profile. Excellent, if a little expensive
What a journey! It’s intensely woodsy - cedar I think. Tobacco, leather, and ash (in a good way) give way to a hint of mint. This stuff will seriously spice up your julep.
Drinking the old west! Tons of flavor.
Love at first taste...
