The smoothness of Wheat Whiskey with enough rye spice to entice. 

Don Poffenroth and Kent Fleischmann were two fishing buddies standing knee deep in a stream. In hushed tones they discussed how lucky they were to live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest… and some drinking was going on too. Soon, they hatched a plan. In 2007 they founded Dry Fly Distillery — the first legal distillery in Washington State since Prohibition. They use the finest local ingredients to craft their award-winning spirits with a line-up that has grown to include five Whiskies, Two Gins, and Vodka.

While some other world Whiskies use Triticale as a component, Dry Fly Straight Triticale Whiskey is the only Straight Triticale Whiskey. Anywhere... In the world... If you are new to Triticale, it’s a hybrid of wheat and rye. Sounds perfect for Whiskey, right? And so it is — delivering the smoothness of wheat and a light peppery-ginger flavor and aroma of rye. It’s aged three years in new American oak and bottled at 88 proof/44% ABV.

Smartass corner:
The word triticale comes from the Latin family names of wheat (Triticum) and rye (Secale) thus “Triti-cale.” It was developed in Scotland and Germany in the 1800s to cross-breed a productive, flavorful grain to grow in harsher conditions.

Alex,
If you could turn this into a candle, you’re house would smell incredible... That being said, you don’t drink whisky for the aroma, you drink it for the taste. Unfortunately, the taste does not live up to the aroma. My wife has a hard time drinking whisky neat, and she can knock this back like it’s a glass of water.

Matt,
Pretty good, but also nothing special. Loses a lot of flavor as the ice starts to melt.
