A strong and tasty high-rye Whiskey following a proven, winning formula.
Dave Schmier has been in the beverages business for more than twenty-five years. Most recently — as a partner in Bardstown Barrel Selections — he developed the Redemption Rye brand that was sold to the Deutsch Family. Most of his time these days is spent on the work he does as founder and president of Proof and Wood Ventures, investing in and developing Spirits brands. Their brand portfolio includes a tidy range of Whiskies, Rums and Genevers.
The Tumblin’ Dice line of Bourbons and Rye Whiskies started as an offshoot of their Deadwood Brand. But it soon took on a life of its own. Deadwood Tumblin’ Dice Heavy Rye Bourbon is sourced from MGP, using a high-rye mash bill of 60% corn, 36% rye, and 4% barley. It’s aged for three years in new oak. If the combination looks familiar, this configuration is delightfully similar to previous, highly-successful and award-winning products Schmier has developed in the past. But this one is bottled a bit stronger at 50% ABV. We say, get a few bottles now before everyone finds out about it.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The fragrances are deep and strong with notes of roasted cocoa nibs, toasted oak, blackberries, and salted caramels.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Taken neat, the flavor profile is powerful and complex with notes of Cracker Jacks, loads of baking spices, cocoa powder, flan, brittle toffee, and oak.
The finish is long and strong with fruit notes, ginger, cinnamon, and plenty of wood.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Deadwood Tumblin' Dice Heavy Rye Bourbon and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
