It’s a high-Rye Moonshine aged and dressed up in a tuxedo.

Andrew Webber and Darek Bell own and run the Corsair Artisan Distilleries (there are two of them) located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Nashville, Tennessee. Friends since childhood, Andrew and Darek began as beer brewers out of their garage and later hit a snag while working on a prototype bio-diesel thing-a-nabob. Darek turned to Andrew and said something like, “You know, distilling Whiskey is a lot more fun than bio-diesel.” Bell had attended Bruichladdich Distilling Academy in Islay, Scotland, so soon after they opened up Corsair — a distillery dedicated to producing a range of small-batch spirits through relentless experimentation. And quite a range it is. They currently have seven “official” releases and no less than seventeen seasonal and experimental products.

Corsair Ryemageddon is a clever name, but we can think of a better one. How about “Franken-Rye” instead? That because this is high-Rye Whiskey monster made from two types of Rye grain bolted together. It uses traditional malted Rye spirits as the base and adds a bit of “chocolate Rye” to build body and depth of flavor. Chocolate Rye is a popular, un-malted brewer’s Rye that has been dark-roasted like espresso beans. Then the distillate is placed in relatively tiny, fifteen gallon charred oak casks to age a bit (smaller casks age spirits faster) and bottled at a proper 46% ABV.

Greg
Greg,
Typically, I'm a bourbon guy, but decided to give this a go. I've been known to enjoy Bruichladdich or something similar from time to time. This bottle definitely reminded me of that peaty, islay type taste. I'm far from a an expert, but I quite enjoyed it.

Valorie,
I really enjoyed this. A little bit of a bunch, but then smooth.

Dwight,
This is one of my favorite low-proof Rye whiskies. It is extremely smooth when enjoyed neat, but also provides nice spice to mixed drinks.

Pete,
I LOVE this rye!!! I was introduced to rye with Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye, which is a pretty good damn Rye- but it couldn't even wipe the nose of Corsair Ryemageddon... Packs itself a little bit of a punch for starters, but then smooths ya right on out. And with that light pepperiness of an afternote, you're gonna find yourself in the middle one Dram-tastic whiskey!! Can't wait til my next bottle comes!!

Peter,
Smooth, hints of coffee, cocoa. Clean finish. Just a little rye and pepper bight. I really enjoyed this Rye. It's made me a fan of Rye Whisky, something I've never spent much time with in the past. I will certainly purchase more.
