Vito,
Very good, I can actually taste the citrus and caramel. Class act.
 
Ken
Ken,
I didn't find this spicy, I just found it intense, with odd tastes that reminded me of floor polish. Not a fan, I'm afraid.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
A kick in’ and vivid flavor, A good savory rye. No overt sweetness. Nice full Rye with a lot of caramel and spice.
 
Nicole
Nicole,
A good savory rye. No overt sweetness but plenty of spice and maltiness.
 
Mike
Mike,
Tasted cinnamon, rich sweetness, and a smoothness that surprised for Rye.
 
Chris
Chris,
Nice full Rye with a lot of caramel and spice.
 
Eric
Eric,
Smooth. Clean in, leaving you with a subtler aftertaste than I was expecting. Nose is interesting
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Nice, smooth. Mellow finish, hints of caramel. My favorite of the welcome box.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
This is the first rye I've tried, but I loved the spice.
 
JR
JR,
The finish totally caught us off guard. One of the most enjoyable ryes we've had. Would like see the notes of a professional taster to help identify some of the flavors I can't quite identify JR
 
Mitch
Mitch,
Love it ! Very smooth and flavorful.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
A little harsh on the first sip, but a smoother finish. I prefer other rye’s over this one.
 
Alberto
Alberto,
Taste was pretty dry from what I’m used to, and the spice came through, not my type of drink though
 
Charles
Charles,
I put this taster up against some of the best in my collection and was shocked it came out on top. I am a rye fan though every time, so I suppose it makes sense.
 
Jon
Jon,
Very smooth not too spicy
 
Brian
Brian,
A bit harsh all around but it did have some good flavors
 
Stephen
Stephen,
New to trying Rye Whiskey and this is only my second brand tasted. Much better experience than my first (which literally tasted like liquid rye bread). However still not sold on this style of whiskey.
 
Randy
Randy,
Decent
 
Nolan
Nolan,
It was good haven’t tried to many of the Ryes yet
 
Brad
Brad,
Decent drink. Good caramel/honey aftertaste.
 
Jon
Jon,
Smooth. That's the best word to describe this Rye. No single ingredient really grabbed me. That might be a good thing or bad thing to each person, but it all translates to a simple and smooth experience.
 
Michael
Michael,
Im not much of a Rye drinker. The smoothness was nice. The spice was comfortable and It has some pretty long legs. I dont think I will be adding this to my bar however.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Solid Rye. Smooth. Good flavor
 
Harold
Harold,
As far as ryes go this is good, not great. The aftertaste was a bit too much grain.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Not a huge fan of Rye myself but this one is a winner.
 
Mike
Mike,
Dry and spicy with pretty long legs. Finishes strong and not as aromatic as I anticipated.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
Fairly harsh with a lot of forward grain flavors. The kick at the finish was a little much for my tastes
 
Ro
Ro,
Very harsh to me, with a lot of forward flavor being grains. Probably would go nicely in a cocktail, but did not prefer it neat.
 
Darren
Darren,
I enjoy the peppery finish. After the obvious rye and grain, I picked up a lot of dry, spicy wood— maybe sandalwood or cedar?— and a fruity pepper— like black currants.
 
James
James,
Cinnamon notes and very smooth
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Like the subtleness of this drink. Not very strong flavors in either direction, and none of that warm feeling inside the esophagus as it goes down. Very drinkable, but don’t know if I’d set out to purchase it, maybe on a good sale I would.
 
William
William,
Spicy, big honey flavor but not sweet. Very dry. Nice change
 
Jason

Matthew
Matthew,
Good.
 
Alan
Alan,
Run of the mill rye whiskey
 
David
David,
It's not the worst Rye I've had, but the spice makes it hard to enjoy. Definitely not something I'd order a second of.
 
Charis
Charis,
Very impressive, great on the pallet. Not being a big Rye fan I am very impressed. ...Really enjoyed it
 
Devin
Devin,
The nose has floral notes with hints of lemon zest and orange peel. The taste is very one note. It has a classic rye taste, but it doesn't really go anywhere. Pretty boring.
 
Rebecca
Rebecca,
Tasted caramel, apricot and nosed/finished ginger. Dry and finished quick. I would repeat this bottles performance.
 
Elijah
Elijah,
My first rye! Great experience. Spicy, smooth, and delicious.
 
Shannon
Shannon,
Good smell. Too spicy for my taste
 
Elisa
Elisa,
Not my favorite but good overall flavor.
 
DAVID
DAVID,
Have never been much of a rye fan so my expectations were not high. I was pleasantly surprised that, like other ryes, I didn't want to make a face and just hand it back. I can't say that it changed my mind about adding rye to my cabinet but it was a nice surprise. I still prefer my rye in bread and humor (pun intended).
 
Brian
Brian,
Bold, with a fair bit of spice
 
Bonnie
Bonnie,
Yum
 
Landon
Landon,
Definitely dry and spicy. Would make a great cocktail!
 
Angelina
Angelina,
We were very surprised by this Dram not expecting this to be a rye, this is rye had slow legs tobacco smell, cinnamon, wood vanilla smell. On the palate black pepper Carmel, vanilla, honey coffee cake with brown sugar. keeping in mind we were blind tasting it going in not knowing which dram we were trying. This rye surprised us it had a very punchy kick but the layers of flavor and notes it brought. very high on our scoring!! we will be adding it to home bar eventually.
 
Adam
Adam,
Smoky, malt, peat
 
Taysha
Taysha,
I thought of a red velvet couch in a Smokey room when I smelled it...but I had no problem sitting on that couch.
 
Adam
Adam,
The best of the three in the tasting category. I wanted to drink more but I am saving some for my dad to try. That said I will buy a bottle in the future cause it is quite good.
 
Lawrence
Lawrence,
This was too spicy for my taste.
 
Monique
Monique,
Initial bite is spicy, but smooths out by the time you swallow. The initial touch makes you think it’s going to punch you in the face, but it doesn’t. Coats your mouth like a nice cigar.
 
Larsen
Larsen,
straight it has a very strong hit right off the bat, but finishing notes were nice. was perfect mixed with dr. pepper oddly enough.
 
alexey
alexey,
Drinkable but not enjoyable
 
Craig
Craig,
good taste with a thick steak
 
Al
Al,
Smooth and dry.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Really liked the first taste on the lips, soft and sweet. The spicy aftertaste took a minute to get used to but I enjoyed it.
 
Raul
Raul,
Perfect for sipping during the summer. Makes a good manhattan or old fashioned with the right sugar substitute and bitters
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Not too impressed. Tasted fine but probably wouldn’t not seek it out.
 
Troy
Troy,
Normally for me Rye is for mixing in a Manhattan as the flavors for me don’t stand up on their own enough for straight drinks. This one, however, had a strong cinnamon flavor at first sip sliding into a caramel smoothness and ending with a bit of tingle on the tip of my tongue. The second sip started off with that familiar caramel smoothness and then suddenly surged into a wave of vanilla. Overall it has a decent balance of sweetness and spice. One of my favorite new Ryes.
 
Crow
Crow,
I’m partial to Bourbon, but this Rye was smooth. Strong rye and pepper upfront with a softer finish.
 
Chris
Chris,
great Rye
 
Danny
Danny,
Light and sweet with a spicy finish
 
Richard
Richard,
Light caramel sweet smell, long legs, spicy peppery taste.
 
Laura
Laura,
Lovely flavors and somehow not heavy.
 
Rick
Rick,
Best Rye I have tried. Full mouthfeel, caramel-honey flavor, sweet aroma and long spicy finish.
 
Danielle
Danielle,
This has a lot of flavor notes like blantons, but with a little more spice.
 
Kelly
Kelly,
Unique flavor; outside my general comfort zone.
 
Jennifer
Jennifer,
Husband says “first sip reminds me of knob creek but smoother”.
 
John
John,
While not a big rye drinker this one was very smooth through out with vanilla and honey to start and ends with wood and smoky hints at the end
 
Kendle
Kendle,
Too spiced, reminds me a bit of a rum.
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
Not huge on Rye normally, and when drank straight the spice and barley was a bit much. But then I added a splash of water and it opened up, enjoyed if after that. Solid drink, while not my cup of tea, it is a solid rye whisky.
 
Mackenzie
Mackenzie,
I really enjoyed this! Great flavor!
 
Peter
Peter,
Faint hints of honey & caramel, heavy one the barley.
 
Jason
Jason,
Spicy rye whiskey, pretty tasty overall. Would like to sample more.
 
Jason
Jason,
Honeysuckling sweet good! Easy drinking!
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Nose- 7.00 Taste - 5.00 Aftertaste - 3.00 Overall - 4.60 Too peppery/spicy for my tastes.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Tried this on two occasions. Loved it the first time, could take it or leave it the second. Great balance of peppery spice and a wonderful P.X. sherry sweetness. Lots of the rye in the bouquet, maybe too much. Also vanilla and honey. Could be smoother, but you don't mind the bite when the sherry shows up.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
I really wanted to like this, but it was just a little too overpowering. Maybe with a dash of water to mellow it out?
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Pleasant surprise - very smooth
 
Mat
Mat,
Never was one for Rye whiskeys, but this one is an exception. Love the back story behind it as well. For the non-Rye crew out there, give this one a shot. Well worth it.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Not a fan of Rye whiskeys, but this was a pleasant surprise. Spicy peaks mellowed out some of the Rye on my palate, and let me enjoy this Whiskey more so than some of its other Rye compatriots.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
The smooth caramel and honey keeps me coming back for more.
 
Luis
Luis,
Not a huge rye whiskey fan and neat it resembles your standard rye. However, chilled it’s a very smooth whiskey without too much caramel or honey sweetness.
 
Nate
Nate,
Sweet, spicy, & smooth
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Very sweet tasting - honey notes. Ok for a tasting probably wouldn’t go for the bottle.
 
Caryn
Caryn,
A little sweet and lots of heat on the back end. Beautiful!
 
Brett
Brett,
Sharp spice notes on the first sip but quickly mellows into sweet oak
 
Philip
Philip,
My first rye, and I am will say it was quite smooth but very spicy. Has a bit of a bite and the spice holds on for a few moments. Maybe after a few more ryes and experience with them i might get to enjoy this more. Nevertheless, this was good but not what I consider great.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
My first Rye and I liked it. Might consider getting a bottle
 
Kelly
Kelly,
I really liked this. It was slightly sweet and quite smooth. My first taste of Rye.
 
Cody
Cody,
I haven’t experienced many ryes but out of what I have had this has definitely been my favorite.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
I get spice and fruit with a strong rye/malt flavor. It oddly smells like soy sauce to me. The spice flavor lingers for a while after the sip. I am not very experienced with rye whiskey but I would rate this one ok but nothing spectacular.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Absolutely smooth, caramel and honey
 
Scott
Scott,
Generally I am not a fan of ryes. Usually to much of a spicy bite for my liking. This still has a bit of sweet with a light spice as well. Better than I expected.
 
Alex
Alex,
This was my introduction to Rye Whiskey. All in all, enjoyable. It was an interesting blend of dark brown sugar and malted barley flavours with notes of bitter orange peel, black pepper, and other spices. Thick, almost syrupy mouthfeel with slight alcohol after-taste.
 
Latoya
Latoya,
I could not get into this spirit at all; it was very crass to my palate as if it was spicy. Even after trying to mix it, the kickback rendered me no favors.
 
Deborah
Deborah,
I have not tried many ryes but enjoyed this greatly. Was initially struck by the smooth taste which the flavor spiral made sense of with caramel and honey. It’s definitely spicy, but I was left with a smooth aftertaste
 
Derek
Derek,
Usually do not care for ryes, but since the previous one I tried (can't remember the name), this one may change my mind. Like the pepper aspect, but certainly enjoyed it. May change my mind about trying ryes.
 
Clark
Clark,
I’m not a bourbon expert, but typically prefer ryes and this did not disappoint.
 
Dan
Dan,
I haven’t met a Rye Whiskey I didn’t like and this was no exception. Slightly dryer finish but still enjoyable.
 
Rafael
Rafael,
Muted flavor; flawed, chemical aftertaste.
 
Lindsay
Lindsay,
I didn’t think there was enough depth of flavor. Tasted almost tinny.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Lacked flavor outside harsh chemical taste with a small citrus back note.
 
MAYA
MAYA,
Very lemon forward, with a nice pepper following after, Very bright.
 
Jason
Jason,
Pretty average rye. Thought the spice notes were a bit overpowering, tasted better when dropping in a cube. Tasted green apple on the finish. Not likely to revisit.
 
Heather
Heather,
It was way too sweet. It had a chemical after taste that I didn’t enjoy.
 
Chuck
Chuck,
A good Rye Whiskey. Could pick up on some citrus, vanilla, and butterscotch with some pepper.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Great on the nose. Definitely got the pepper. A smooth drinking rye.
 
Randy
Randy,
It’s definitely a different one, not too harsh but not one I’d choose for my shelf.
 
Ben
Ben,
Nose: Pepper, cinnamon, spices, cardamom, rye/grasses develops honey, citrus, caramel. Taste: Cinnamon, caramel, spices, honey; muted floral/rose notes coming through. Quite hot bottled at 46.5%.
 
Sanford
Sanford,
This one was not for me drinking it neat. There was an off taste.
 
Brandon
Brandon,
I generally like ryes, however as a sipping kind of drinker I was not impressed. The rye was good but not straight in my opinion. Mixed however it is phenomenal in place of jack or Jim.
 
Audra
Audra,
I’m not, as of yet, very familiar with ryes. I generally liked this one. There was a little too much of a bite for my liking, but I did enjoy some of the other flavors to come through.
 
Lucas
Lucas,
Never tried a rye before have to say i enjoyed this quite a lot.
 
Jeanine
Jeanine,
This was in my welcome pack and it was my first tasting and I must say I am glad that I joined this club. It is going to be money well spent. That said, I enjoyed the rye. I found it to be pretty smooth for a young rye.
 
William
William,
This was my first Rye whiskey. It was a bit too peppery for my taste.
 
Eric
Eric,
Part of my welcome pack. I enjoy a decent rye, especially in an old fashioned. Interesting nose of grass and heavy rye, oak, almost ripe Granny Smith apple. Palate of anise typical of rye, spicy, earthy grass and oak. Dry, short finish says it’s clearly young Far from other rye I’ve had previously (Michters, Templeton and even Bulleit) Not great neat but passable in an old fashioned.
 
Brian
Brian,
Spicy and has some gasoline finish that is actually enjoyable
 
Tonia
Tonia,
I found this to be passable. I'm not typically a fan of ryes, so my ambivalent response to this is to be expected.
 
Sean
Sean,
Smooth rich flavor. A little bit of bite.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Complex with many flavors, peppery finish. While I’ve had better Ryes, this one was good.
 
Florina
Florina,
Nice going down a little to much for me but some of my peoples like it. More of someone sitting around the fire pit drinking and talking.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Didn't really like this at first, but it seemed to tasted better after the first couple of tries. Still not a go-to for me though.
Aaron
Aaron,

Dan
Dan,
Solid rye whiskey. Very smooth with lots of fruity spiciness and grain flavors.
 
Christa
Christa,
I was surprised in a pleasant way by this drink, I thought of the tasters in my welcome box it would be my least liked but it was -by far- my favorite. The peppery spice was particularly delicious and I've added a bottle to my next shopping list.
 
Eric
Eric,
Can I give it less than 1 star? It tastes artificial I could not even finish the sample
 
Roxann
Roxann,
I am not a big Rye drinker but for a Rye I found this one to be smooth with a nice bite at the end.
 
Travis
Travis,
Excellent finish, the spicy kick from the rye wasn’t as overpowering as others.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
My all time favourite, I’ve yet to try a lot of spirits on the market but this is leading so far... perfect drink with BBQ meats. Nice alone. Nice with coke. Spiced popcorn.
 
Katherine
Katherine,
Spicy, really good spice
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Smooth and tasty!
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Barley and rye graininess really hit home with a good dose of black pepper burn. Caramel and honey come through as undertones. Bone dry on the finish. This one is good, but not great for my palate.
 
Ross
Ross,
Just not a Rye guy, wanted to cut it with some Ginger Ale.
 
Shelly
Shelly,
Just ok. I liked it better than I would anything with eye finish.
 
Kay
Kay,
Disclaimer: I'm not very versed in ryes! Great flavors of barley and rye, but the overall flavor profile leaves much to be desired. I think the spiciness and sharper characteristics comes on too strong in trying to compensate for its sweetness. I can tell they are putting in great effort to craft a great rye here, so I am excited to see how they improve in the coming years. This would definitely be an interesting one for seasoned rye fans since it has a lot of character.
 
chris
chris,
Very nice on the tongue, corn and rye right out front, but not so smooth you get no burn. As ryes go, this one is better than most
 
Steven
Steven,
Subtle sweetness (caramel and honey) with some pepper. Nice
 
J
J,
Lots of burn / or Illinois hug, very thin spirit not much body that I would expect with such a strong finish. Has the spirit of a wheat-ed spirit vs rye.
 
Christine
Christine,
Choked
 
arne
arne,
too sweet for my liking, has a sweet corn taste. I like the dry aspect of it
 
Ehren
Ehren,
Smooth rye, mild pepper finish on the top of the tongue. Enjoy the initial bite on the back of my throat and the extended vanilla finish.
 
Jennifer
Jennifer,
The spice doesn't dominate the flavor, while still having a little bit of burn. This was relatively smooth for a younger rye. Liked it a lot.
 
Ben
Ben,
FEW people will like this. Thin flavor with plenty of burn.
 
Bianca
Bianca,
Not a Rye fan but this one is really good!
 
Greg
Greg,
I'm new to rye whiskey but this FEW is fantastic! Great complex flavor (that I still can't quite put my finger on!) that is just plain pleasant to drink! I'm a Scotch guy and really like this!
 
Carla
Carla,
Best Rye I have had.
 
Julia
Julia,
Like the "burn" this gave me....just starting out tasting new whiskey and bourbon brands but liked this one.
 
Brent
Brent,
To date the best Rye I've ever tasted. Like how the spice doesn't dominate, but shares in the complexity
 
Liana
Liana,
One of the better ryes I’ve had. Not overly spicy with some sweetness to it.
 
Brian
Brian,
Love it
 
Fred
Fred,
Loved it!
 
Calley
Calley,
I liked the flavor of the whiskey but the strength of the alchohol seemed really strong
 
Kaitlin
Kaitlin,
Was indeed spicy and dry. Kind of made my teeth feel itchy (if that’s even a thing??). It was okay, but I passed the remainder to my neighbor.
 
Lou
Lou,
Fantastic whiskey but would likely use it as a mixer rather than to enjoy as a sipping whiskey.
 
Russ
Russ,
Heavy on the pepper in the tasting notes. Just so harsh that it i snot a sipper, needs to be mixed into a Manhattan or something where other flavors can take over.
 
Kristina
Kristina,
Smooth, floral, good mouthfeel, sweet. Me & my husband’s favorite of the intro tasting box.
 
Amy
Amy,
No finish, but good for a rye
 
Frank
Frank,
A beautiful change of pace
 
Alicia
Alicia,
Very smooth, I liked the caramel tones.
 
Charles
Charles,
Lemongrass, clean, followed by subtle fruit, rye
 
Chad
Chad,
Sweet and spicy with a kick!! Love it!
 
Lupe
Lupe,
Very enjoyable!
 
Jerri
Jerri,
Warm and rich in color and flavor. I would add this as second runner up in my home arsenal.
 
Elisa
Elisa,
Very smooth without the bite!
 
Stephanie
Stephanie,
I love the flavor of this whiskey. It is smooth and still full of smokey notes. It is yummy!!
 
Patrick
Patrick,
You can smell some vanilla. It has a bite to it and is a little sharp. Has a longer, mellower finish, but still strong. Not overly impressed.
 
JOHN
JOHN,
A solid warmth with caramel at the drivers seat.
 
Teresa
Teresa,
Not usually a fan of ryes I was pleasantly surprised by Few this is one I’d keep in my home bar and offer to my guests Thumbs up!
 
Denise
Denise,
Loved this! Smooth and easy to drink. Delicious caramel flavor.
 
Dave
Dave,
Though overpriced at $57, Few Rye Whiskey is a good drink. Nice, rich caramel and honey flavor that I found pleasing. The finish was smooth with a hint of spice. Not too bad with a Cuban.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
I really enjoyed tasting this blind. I've never been a fan of ryes, but this is one that I would keep in my home bar. It surprised me how much I enjoyed it. Smooth but with a ton of flavor profile.
 
Salvatore
Salvatore,
Smooth flavor
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Reminded me of some moonshine I bought when I was in Mississippi in the late 80's. I liked it for the memories, but I'm just not a rye drinker.
 
joseph
joseph,
Not a bad dram.. and a good sipping whisky. I was somewhat surprised having a blind sample. I've been wanting to try this for a while now but didn't have the chance. I would consider adding this to my private stock, however, I do feel there are a few better choices at this price point. But it's a solid choice to order when out for dinner with my wife.
 
Robert
Robert,
Loved the flavor of this Rye. It was very enjoyable, however I agree that it was bit monotone.
 
Sonali
Sonali,
The description provided for the aromatics, flavor, and finish are accurate. Unfortunately for me, the sweet components didn't blend well with the grain and pepper. Since I found the drinking experience unbalanced, I tried it with a little ginger ale. The sodapop smoothed out the flavors for me, but my husband said the ginger ale masked too many of the Rye's nuances and that he preferred it straight. Husband gives this whiskey six stars and would pay up to $40 for it.
 
Mark
Mark,
Honestly shocked at how much I enjoyed this!
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Love it. Very smooth finish.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Not a huge rye fan but this whiskey was ok. Decent flavor throughout, with spiciness from start to finish. Not a complex profile, almost monotone.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Not for me.
 
Moneca
Moneca,
Butterscotch to the nose. Smooth spicy finish. Really enjoyable.
 
Rory
Rory,
I was surprised... liked this and did not think it fit my profile. Very easy to drink and a bit sweet (?) but it is balanced.
 
Evan
Evan,
Spicy right up front. Bold profile on the nose.
 
Troy
Troy,
Not something I would have tried outside the welcome box and I would have missed out. Enjoyable rye that captures some wood/earth notes.
 
Leanne
Leanne,
Enjoyed this, Rye is not my go to, but I did enjoy this. But liked this rye over others I have had
 
Russell
Russell,
Nice smell and smooth taste. Easy going down and a tasty rye finish
 
Jim
Jim,
I liked this one so much I bought a bottle!!
 
Chris
Chris,
Not a Rye drinker! Bookers is like moonshine in comparison.
 
Jennie
Jennie,
Strong bite with a hard finish.
 
Ernie
Ernie,
Not really a Rye drinker. But it was as good as Bookers.
 
Susan
Susan,
Good flavor, but a bit of a bitter aftertaste.
 
Brianna
Brianna,
I was really pleased with how smooth this rye was. It was delightfully sweet as well. I have only tried rye a few times before this and they were not good experiences. This has made me rethink what a rye ca be. And I am looking forward to trying more
 
Donald
Donald,
Never been much on Rye but this can change my mind.
 
Scott
Scott,
Been developing my taste for peated , unpeated, and caske finished whisky then tasted this rye. Th e difference in grain used was evident and not to my taste. Reminded me of grandmas dairy.
 
Tucker
Tucker,
I love the caramel finish. First taste off the tongue is strong and rough - inspires me to drink with some old friends outside by a campfire. Fun to drink, sippable in a fun setting. Wouldn't be my first dram to reach for celebrating by myself.
 
Brian
Brian,
There is a surprising amount of complexity to this Rye. Great everyday sipper!
 
Paul
Paul,
I don't drink Rye often so this was something new. I have little to compare it with.
 
Brian
Brian,
Lovely taste of honey and carmel.
 
Quinton
Quinton,
Nice honey aftertaste and a good balance of pepper.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
surprisingly smooth and sweet for a Rye- one of the better Rye's I've had
 
Amy
Amy,
Not for sipping (too dry), but likely good in a cocktail.
 
Abby
Abby,
This was delicious for room temp sipping.
 
BEAU
BEAU,
Dry as a typical rye should be but still flavorful. I enjoyed it while tasting but probably would not buy a bottle for sipping.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Easy to drink. Very sweet.
 
Trista
Trista,
Has a wonderful spicy aroma when served neat, more of a medicinal aroma when iced. Sweet taste, I could definitely pick up on the honey. I wish it had a little more body.
 
William
William,
PRETTY GOOD
 
Devin
Devin,
Flavorful, however the longer it stayed in your glass it became to taste like a very pungent vinegar.
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Meh. Fine in a pinch, but not great.
 
MATTHEW
MATTHEW,
Best without ice. Probably makes a week old fashioned. Pedestrian sipping whiskey
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Wow, this one is rough.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Very smooth with a hint of spice. Nice on the rocks or with some ginger.
 
Simon
Simon,
First impression counts but dont judge a book by its cover the finish is pretty amazing
 
Ed
Ed,
Jumps into the sinus
 
Corey
Corey,
Too much grain. Woody.
 
Jesi
Jesi,
It was sweet. (Pun intended)
 
Polly
Polly,
I was not a fan of this one. It was not very complex and not what I would want in a Scotch. I didn't even finish the vial.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
It’s rye in your face! But in a good way. Lotta spice, dry, with a pleasant finish. Wouldn’t describe it as smooth, but very drinkable.
 
Marvin
Marvin,
I enjoyed it. I liked the spice and even the botanical note mentioned by another reviewer.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Great mix whiskey, my wife loved this for mixing.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Pay whiskey. Doesn't have the complexity of other rye's
 
Sabrina
Sabrina,
It was okay, if you like rye. I'm not a fan of this one.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
First attempt at tasting a Rye, so hard to judge. From what I remember after drinking the Scotch, it was smooth, but spicy. Can't get the taste of the Scotch out of my mouth.
 
Adam
Adam,
Drank it neat. Spice is overwhelming and the finish is botanical like a gin. Not a fan.
 
David
David,
I was prepared to not like this, but I was pleasantly surprised! Sweet and spicy! I’ll definitely pick up a bottle somewhere down the line.
 
Brita
Brita,
I like this bourbon. It has a very nice flavor. I like the honey notes in the taste
 
Ed
Ed,
Smooth with a little ice
 
Adam
Adam,
Very nice finish
 
Leah
Leah,
Really liked this. Finish was so nice. Tasty!
 
Charles
Charles,
I am not a big Rye fan but this was quite tasty. My go to Rye when drinking it is Bulliet Small Batch. This was good but not as good as the Bulleit.
 
Lanya
Lanya,
Not my personal favorite. Burned more than expected.
 
Jessica
Jessica,
I loved it! I thought it was a beautiful match. Whiskey finished by rye. Smooth and delightful.
 
Steven
Steven,
Not the biggest rye whiskey guy, it was good but I will sick with my bourbon.
 
Jim
Jim,
Good and true to flavor spiral. Malt on nose and spice on taste.
 
Donald
Donald,
Nose - Rye, lots of rye. Palate - Bold, spicy , Carmel on the front. With a medium burn. Finish - Butter cream with a small hint of oak.
 
Kerry
Kerry,
Smooth and mellow
 
Marissa
Marissa,
Not my favorite - dry with a hint of spice.
 
Robert
Robert,
Smooth
 
Douglas
Douglas,
I'm not a Rye guy, but this wasn't bad. It was actually better neat than with ice/water. I might try this again.
 
Joel
Joel,
Really enjoyed the change with this rye. Note the citrus right away. The finish is long and spicy. My wife preferred the Few over Breckinridge.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Smoother than I anticipated with a hint of sweetness. I enjoyed it.
 
Mark
Mark,
Smooth softer profile than expected. The wife tasting with and she liked this one over Breckinridge
 
Matt
Matt,
I do enjoy a few rye's, but this wasn't one of my favorites.
 
Tracy
Tracy,
"rye" always throws me off, but this was a bit of a surprise to me. I found it smooth and easy to sip.
 
Michael
Michael,
Nose has prominent notes of molasses and butterscotch, with a touch of pepper. Flavors have the classic rye spiciness, along with grain husk, cloves, and lemon zest, leading to a long spicy finish with a touch of cedar wood notes underneath. Spicy (but not hot,) this is a solid rye whiskey that sips pretty well on it's own, but should really shine in cocktails.
 
Adam
Adam,
Harsh not as good as I thought it would be
 
ELLEN
ELLEN,
I don't normally like rye whisky, bu this one took me by surprise. It was really smooth and the rye flavor was not over powering. Truely enjoyed this one
 
Robert
Robert,
A bit harsh not my favorite.
 
Tanya
Tanya,
Better than expected. Easy drinker for a rye
 
Mike
Mike,
Nice! A little pepper and smooth. I think Few will be in my bar soon.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
The Breckenridge Bourbon was a truly amazing & outstanding sample. The Few Rye was ok, smoother with a different twang spice kick than some other ryes I've had. The Kilchoman Machir Bay Scotch ruined the experience. Its peaty disgusting flavor lingered in your mouth for hours making this sample as a whole fail to impress. The highlights are that I will buy a bottle of Breckenridge, but hard pass on doing another blind taste test.
 
Ron
Ron,
I was pleasantly surprised at how the easy it was to pick up on the rye and malted barley aromas and flavors. The spice lingered a bit long but other than that, it was my favorite of the sample pack.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Not a bad nose and finish. Spices are well represented.
 
Paul
Paul,
Very enjoyable, great nose, love the spices. Not too hot. Added a few drops of water after the first few sips, opened it up slightly.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Not a big fan of rye but very drinkable.
 
Michael
Michael,
A good, solid rye with some spicy character. Not to mention sweet. Overall, well balanced.
 
Susan
Susan,
Our favorite of the welcome box. Smooth and not as hot as most
 
Jahzel
Jahzel,
Very smooth drink so I could leave on my tongue a little longer and get the full taste. Ended with a smoky touch which I enjoyed. The overall taste wasn't excellent.
 
Shelley
Shelley,
Has warm finish that I really like. It hits harts but finishes with a smooth burn.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
One of the better ryes I’ve had.
 
Kristina
Kristina,
This was fiery but finished very nicely. I would not say no if someone offered me a glass, but I am not sure if I will buy a bottle. I am not a rye whiskey drinker but if I could be if I continue to try different types.
 
Waylon
Waylon,
Very smooth with a light Rye taste and a buttery flavor. I would recommend trying if you like rye whiskey.
 
Sean
Sean,
It was just aight fo' me dog
 
Bryan
Bryan,
No bad 👍
 
Oliver
Oliver,
You think it’s gonna smoke. But it smooths out.
 
Greg
Greg,
If you like Carmel and butterscotch, I got a lot of that in this rye. Lingering finish of sweetness.
 
Beth
Beth,
One of the better eyes I’ve tried. Got the rye and cinnamon first thing in the nose and palate, followed by the citrus. A great sipper, neat or in the rocks.
 
Norm
Norm,
Very nice
 
Joshua
Joshua,
I'm not a fan of Rye but I want to explore and havent had anything from Few. It smells good.. once I taste it, I get the Honey note up front and prominent. Pleasant. But then the Rye and pepper kicks in and I wish the sweetness would stick around longer. The spice lingers long after taking a sip. Dry alcohol. I'm still not a Rye fan but appreciate the experience.
 
John
John,
Solid rye, not too spicy, not too sweet, and mixes well.
 
Richard
Richard,
Smooth and spicy. I haven’t been a fan of Rye but this was compelling.
 
Matt
Matt,
I actually give it a 7.5... My wife and I liked the Rye just fine... better than fine... Our issue is we have a local distillery that’s as good if not better... and cheaper... But make no mistake... This is good schmit!
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Really liked the spice.
 
David
David,
Not bad.
 
Bill
Bill,
Loved this unexpectedly! Generally I prefer bourbon, but now I wonder if I’ve ever actually had a good rye. Pleasantly spicy and sweet - very easy to sip. Will be adding to my bar!
 
Edward
Edward,
While not usually a fan of rye’s the nice blend of sweet and spicy in this has me second guessing myself. This could be a great base in some classic cocktails but also straight up isn’t as astringent as some of its competitors.
 
Brittany
Brittany,
I'm learning to appreciate Ryes. This one is not bad, but almost has an odd Rye flavor. I would drink again, but I don't care to purchase, especially for the price. Worth a try though.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
An ok bourbon but a little light on the flavor and color. I wouldn't consider it a top shelf brand but certainly not bottom shelf either.
 
William
William,
Very smooth, had a nice fragrance, not smokey at all. I enjoyed it!
 
Donald
Donald,
To harsh
 
Brett
Brett,
We found it to be so so
 
Carmen
Carmen,
When you first try it you get the warm sweet spice flavors, it was pleasant.
 
Michael
Michael,
Spicy and a cleaner finish than the Breckenridge with more ABV.
 
Tim
Tim,
Very good!
 
Christine
Christine,
Surprisingly, my favorite out of the first tasting! I tend to not enjoy ryes, yet this was more than enjoyable—I’ll likely add this to my home bar collection.
 
Michael
Michael,
An enjoyable rye. Not overly spicy, with some caramel/oatmeal cookie notes. But as I'm more of a bourbon drinker I tend to enjoy the sweetness you get from bourbon with a rye accent rather than straight rye. But still enjoyed this.
 
John
John,
Very good! Strong taste of caramel with a touch of pepper. Tied for favorite of the welcome package.
 
Dustin
Dustin,
Very nice slightly sweet yet spicy.
 
Monica
Monica,
My inexperience with rye whiskey may be why I feel I would have gotten the same flavor from a bandaid. It also was smoky to me, a flavor that I avoid in whiskeys.
 
William
William,
Definitely may need to learn and understand rye better found it to be very harsh on the throat!
 
Peggy.
Peggy.,
Liked it
 
Kyle
Kyle,
Not a fan of whiskey, rye whiskey even less. Probably why I did not like this.
 
Nora
Nora,
Smooth finish, light crisp taste, not too strong.
 
BRAD
BRAD,
Nice rye, smooth, slightly sweet. Will buy a bottle of this.
 
Matt
Matt,
Has a good amount of spice - would like a more full finish
 
Richard
Richard,
I’ve not tasted a lot of rye whiskeys. I thought I might like them better than this. I did not get a lot out of the flavor spiral.
 
Rahul
Rahul,
Hated it. Very unpleasant after taste.
 
John
John,
Rye isn't my preferred choice, but good as it was...
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Pleasantly surprised by this one. Not a huge fan of rye in general but this one had good flavor & was smoother than I expected. Would recommend to my rye loving friends.
 
Terry
Terry,
I love my Rye’s!! This was a great sample will consider adding to my bar!
 
Susan
Susan,
Was OK. Maybe drink for a once-in-awhile occasion.
 
Jody
Jody,
NOVICE REVIEW: So I am normally a Jack Daniels guy, never really tried Rye Whiskey until I had some Copper Pony and Winchester. Didn't like either one of those for sure! FEW was not bad, I could drink it again. Much smoother that the ones listed above. Not sure I am a Rye Whiskey guy though.
 
Brian
Brian,
A pretty good Rye...not overpowering. More of a Bourbon guy, but this is a nice Whiskey.
 
joshua
joshua,
loved the flavor and sharpness of this whiskey..definitely will drink again
 
Ilene
Ilene,
Caramel is immediately tasted. Whiskey is not my drink but I could drink this.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
I've never had a Rye that I liked (therefore, I've only had a few - pun intended), but this one was actually quite nice. In fact, I could see myself buying a bottle just to have on hand for guests that like Rye (or when I'm feeling adventurous).
 
Tony
Tony,
Loved this! I think ryes might be my favorite!
 
Kevin
Kevin,
very smooth. Almost too much so. Not enough character to get me excited. As for Ryes though I thought it was pretty solid. I generally don't much like Rye but this one is not normal.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Delicious
 
Jason
Jason,
Wasn’t impressing. I like rye whisky but I’m glad I didn’t buy a bottle to try it. It would have been a waste. Not a good flavor. Not a good aftertaste.
 
Dawn
Dawn,
I don't drink rye on a regular basis but found this to really enjoyable. It balanced between a rye and bourbon. Great nose and mellow finish. I would consider buying a bottle. Great with a cigar.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Excellent! Bought a bottle at my local liquor store immediately after. Great flavor, smooth, and well balanced.
 
Dwain
Dwain,
Very clean! I like this and may order. (if only I knew what I get for the $200 membership??)
 
David
David,
Definitely liked this one. The spiciness was great. I will be buying this again.
 
Mario
Mario,
Liked the mouthfeel and butteriness. Disliked the overtly malted barley taste.
 
Lindsey
Lindsey,
I generally enjoy Rye, but the harshness of this one drowned out any flavor profile it had, even with the addition of a little water. I could tell that a nice profile was there, and I think an extra year or two in the barrel would have made a big difference. Just too young for the flavors to come through.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Not as good as my Whistle Pig. Nice to try something without the risk.
 
Howard
Howard,
Smooth, sweet
 
David
David,
Very enjoyable with just enough spice to let you know you are on the rye train.
 
maxwell
maxwell,
nice bite and spice.
 
Kristi
Kristi,
Just ok - harsh to start. Much prefer others
 
Scott
Scott,
Great taste for a Rye whiskey. Enjoyable smooth spicy sweet taste
 
Trevor
Trevor,
Pretty harsh, decent up front flavor.
 
Lynn
Lynn,
It was just okay. Pretty harsh at the start. Some nice back flavors.
 
Amanda
Amanda,
A bit too hot, spicy finish, and love the honey and caramel taste.
 
Angela
Angela,
A very strong up front burn that tickles the back of your throat, but a smooth finish. I personally am not a fan of such a strong start (as well as such a strong burn), but my boyfriend tried it and he likes the finish more than anything.
 
sheldon
sheldon,
Lighter than I thought. Taste the malt. Spicy finish
 
Mason
Mason,
Very smooth whiskey. I did not know I was a fan of rye before I tried this. Definitely going to order a bottle.
 
kenneth
kenneth,
ok. I guess, not much of a ray drinker.
 
Olaf
Olaf,
Very interesting for a rye. Only reason I didn’t go higher on the rating is because I’m used to most rye’s having more heavier body. If it would have had the flavor it currently has along with a heavier body, I feel the sky would be the limit for this tasty drink. Would be interested to try this in a Sazerac cocktail.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Not bad, but not going to be one of my go-to favorites.
 
Joesph
Joesph,
I felt it was very smooth.
 
Will
Will,
A bit too much bite on the first and second sip for my palate.
 
David
David,
I like bourbon, and not typically a rye fan, but this was a sample so what the heck. I actually liked it a great deal. It makes me take back all the things I've said about rye...
 
Jim
Jim,
This was not for me. It had a bad taste and ended up giving me a headache.
 
Sarah
Sarah,
Very good taste. Would like to try again. Love the label design.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Nose- Dried Fruit, Honey, Caramel, friendly and inviting Taste- Honey(lasting), Pepper(up-front but fades very fast), light bite on swallowing but not a lasting alcohol burn, there is a sweet taste right before the pepper that I can't quite put my finger on Overall- This is my first rye, so I have no comparison for the category, but this is tasty and interesting. Not the first bottle I'd grab off the shelf.
 
JOSE
JOSE,
Dry finish for me and barley on the nose. Not my style
 
Joe
Joe,
Heavy caramel notes, very smooth, I enjoyed it!
 
Peter
Peter,
Light, smooth.
 
Michael
Michael,
Interesting flavor. I would ever have tried it. Probably won't again just because I prefer scotch.
 
german
german,
Solid, great aroma and very smooth
 
Joe
Joe,
I freaking adore this whiskey. It's tremendous in a sidecar and old-fashioned and even better neat.
 
seth
seth,
Not for me not a bad flavor just not my style.
 
Gary
Gary,
Currently my favorite rye.
 
Gordon
Gordon,
Sweetish, but not bourbon sweet. Smooth finish.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
I didnt know I liked rye whisky till I tried Few. I'm a fan. Really smooth with a nice finish.
 
Robert
Robert,
Super smooth and not too spicy for me.
 
Nancy
Nancy,
Very different flavors so smooth. We really enjoyed this one.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Very good rye
 
Scott
Scott,
Definitely a little spice to the taste. Not a huge rye fan but could definitely sip on this every once in a while no problem. Added one ice cube to smooth it out.
 
Peter
Peter,
Tried the sample -definitely has the spice of rye up front. Decent sample, kind of in the middle of the road. Maybe better in a cocktail.
 
Mike
Mike,
A good spicy heat.
 
Sudesh
Sudesh,
My be it is just my taste preference, I found it to be little too peaty. Needed to water it down a little to balance the flavors.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Very good spicy Rye.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Not quite the spicy adventure that Whistle Pig delivers, but FEW is growing on me. One thing I like is the spicy and oaky finish.
 
Michael
Michael,
Not the best bourbon and not the worst - it is smooth with a bit of harshness at the end - good for cocktails or on the rocks - there are better rye for neat.
 
Rich
Rich,
Not a fan.
 
DOUGLASS
DOUGLASS,
Very enjoyable rye. Will add to my bar.
 
Richard
Richard,
Enjoyable. It had its rye qualities, but it did not separate itself drastically from anything else.
 
Shaun
Shaun,
Smooth and easy to drink with a nice finish.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
My first rye whiskey. It was smooth. And I loved the sweet and spooky flavors.
 
John
John,
Too heavy on the spice. It would be a good rye for a Sazerac, but pricey for just making cocktails.
 
Shannon
Shannon,
Very good rye whiskey. Starts off with a pepper kick, and sweet caramel finish. I would recommend this rye to friends and family.
 
Adam
Adam,
Though this was ok. This is the first chance to solidify that the new member made a good decision to join. This and the scotch only let me know I made a mistake and should cancel my membership. Why why would you do this. You have access to plenty of awesome and broadly liked spirits and this is the first taste that you give?! Sorry to be blunt but this is pretty stupid. You want members to stay and this is not the first impression that you should want. Sorry for the real talk but that is the truth.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
This was admittedly my first Rye and after reading some of the reviews I wasn’t sure if I’d like it but it was pleasantly surprising. It does offer the peppery finish as advertised, the first sip being the most pronounced. But as it had more time to open up, it really did prove to be smooth and balanced. I’m partial to bourbons but this was a great switch of pace. I’d recommend it with something that calls for cinnamon in the recipe after dinner but it does just as well as a stand alone glass.
 
Chris
Chris,
Too spicy for me
 
Eric
Eric,
Not what I expected from a rye. Too much peppery burn in the finish. The nose was a bit strong for my preference.
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Awesome
 
John
John,
I prefer rye to bourbon - I've always preferred spice to sweet. This has a lot of pepper flavor, and is a little harsher than I'd expect at this alcohol content (and price!), but I wouldn't be mad to see this bottle on my shelf.
 
Alex
Alex,
My favorite of the initial tasting box. This is going to be a staple in my bar going forward.
 
Kelly
Kelly,
First experience with rye, and very enjoyable. Very malty, like a beer flavor, with a spicy kick of pepper. I definitely want more of this.
 
Craig
Craig,
If you like pepper, you’ll like this. Not my flavor for sure
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Least favorite of the initial tasting box. Rye whiskey is just not my thing.
 
Roger
Roger,
A bit too spicy for my taste but, a good rye.
 
David
David,
Not very smooth, better finish then beginning
 
Doug
Doug,
A good whiskey
 
Tony
Tony,
Decent rye, little too spicy for my taste. Probably better as a base in a cocktail then on the rocks.
 
Sherita
Sherita,
I prefer Bourbon on any given day, but after drinking this I may have to switch! The smoothness and caramelized after taste was EPIC!
 
Carlos
Carlos,
Liked it. Pretty smooth with spicy notes.
 
Frank
Frank,
I love this. Can taste the barley and honey mixed with pepper. Awesome combination. Good Job.
 
BRIAN
BRIAN,
My first Rye Whiskey...the nose (Vanilla is what stood out) was even better than the taste. Very smooth finish.
 
Justin
Justin,
This was my first experience with Rye Whiskey. Really smooth. I would consider stocking this on my shelf.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Really, really liked this bottle. Great smell and taste. I could drink glass after glass of this.
 
James
James,
Really smooth, what you'd expect from a nice rye, Just the right amount of spice for my everyday pallet. There are sweet notes at first with the rye building intensity over time. Giving way to a medium spice and a short non-memorable finish for me. Good for sippin on a cold winters night.
 
Guadalupe
Guadalupe,
This was every bit smooth! Very enjoyable to drink. I am getting a bottle
 
Robert
Robert,
Much better than the scotch, really smell the Carmel aroma with a barley follow up. Very nice aftertaste.
 
Dallas
Dallas,
Very smooth sip, but super harsh spice in the throat. Not the biggest fan.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Nice rye taste without being overpowering. I definitely got some notes of vanilla.
 
Robert
Robert,
Nice mellow flavor
 
Rhea
Rhea,
Spicy and sweet but prefer bourbon
 
Barbara
Barbara,
Nice, but I prefer bourbon over rye
 
John
John,
Spicy and sweet good sipping Rye
 
Natalie
Natalie,
Prefer bourbon over rye, and this confirmed my preference. A little bitter to start with and can certainly taste the pepper at the finish.
 
Alyssa
Alyssa,
Very smooth, but I taste grain compared to the bourbon. So far, I'll go for bourbon over rye.
 
HERB
HERB,
Fairly good tasting with a little kuck
 
Alice
Alice,
This one has some kick to it, and I liked it more than I thought I would. Nice and round, once you get past the alcohol burn, opens up quite a bit with a little water.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
I received this in a tasting box. While I'm not a rye fan in general, I have to admit this wasn't as dry as I expected. A little more "angry" than I prefer but overall not bad.
 
Brian
Brian,
Picked up on the honey right away... my first Rye
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Loved the sweet and rye taste
 
Scott
Scott,
Not bad not to bad at all!!!
 
Eli
Eli,
Not smooth at all. If anything, a bitter petroleum taste.
 
Jason
Jason,
Huge fan of this smooth and what I like to call relaxing bourbon. This is a bottle I can see myself recommending to friends or bottle that I could just have everyday drink out of. I feel like the fruity taste really popped out to me without no real burn when going down. Rye whiskey has been my go to over the holidays.
 
Duane
Duane,
More sweet than expected. Definite malted barley taste, not as much pepper as other rye whiskeys I have tried. Quite a bit of spice on the back end. I enjoyed this quite a bit.
 
Dale
Dale,
I wasn't really a fan of this Rye. First taste was hard to take.
 
Oscar
Oscar,
I'm not a huge fan of Ryes, but I did enjoy this one. Nice kick. Strong start, smooth finish. Not sure that I would buy a bottle, but can definitely enjoy with a cigar on a casual night.
 
Mike
Mike,
Makes a good manhattan. Buttery
 
Philip
Philip,
Easy drink, hint of caramel, definitely a peppery spicy fruit note. All round a good Rye
 
Austin
Austin,
Ryes aren’t always my favorite. But this one was pretty good. Sweet but peppery.
 
David
David,
Not like any Rye I’ve had before. The spice and pepper are very prevalent flavors. The smell is nice, but that first sip knocked me back!
 
Sean
Sean,
Very smooth, nice finish. Very complex.
 
Michael
Michael,
It is good for sipping. I do like it.
 
John
John,
Fairly dark rye with mahogany tone. Heavier thick appearance. Thin rye smell with hint of pepper and some type of citrus. Medium body whiskey with a pleasant mix of pepper and caramel. Dry finish that seems to linger a little. Very nice to drink slightly chilled and neat. I used glacier rocks.
 
Scott
Scott,
Smooth and mild. I didn't pick up all the complexity noted in the flavor spiral, but I really, really enjoyed this whiskey.
 
amanda
amanda,
Fairly average, had to chase it down with soda though
 
AMANDA
AMANDA,
Did not suit my palate.
 
Marcus
Marcus,
Not good. Tastes way too poney
 
Brian
Brian,
Rye whiskey is not my thing
 
AJ
AJ,
This was a tasty Rye. Smooth up front, bit of a burn on the back end.
 
Emanuel
Emanuel,
Really unique flavor but delicious
 
Camron
Camron,
My first tasting was the Few Rye Whiskey and it was really good...it has a smooth taste with a spicy finish...its something i can easily sip
 
Maureen
Maureen,
Lovely, spicy, complex rye. Baking spices come through mid-palate with citrus peel flavors.
 
Edward
Edward,
I do not usually like Rye (Bourbon is my choice) but this Rye is very smooth and light. I would purchase a bottle.
 
Brian
Brian,
Burn on the backend
 
Brian
Brian,
This was in my welcome box and I really enjoyed it. I've not tried many ryes but of those I have, I would say this is among the best.
 
Sharron
Sharron,
The first sip was smooth rye flavor, slightly sweet, but the burn set in, and a harsh, bitter aftertaste. Tried an ice cube, still didn't find it palatable.
 
Nicki
Nicki,
I did not like this rye. It was complex, but I couldn’t get past the rubberbandy/latex flavor. May try again later when I’m more adventurous.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Don't let the Medium Amber color fool you, this rye is much lighter bodied than you might expect. An anise scent, with notes of citrus and honey give way to a cherry and caramel flavor, still colored by lemon zest. Few has a lingering fruity finish, which I didn't expect, and opening it with a few drops of water enhance that fruit taste while still leaving a prominent licorice flavor and smell.
 
Kalin
Kalin,
I enjoyed this, however not as much as I was hoping. It was stronger on the spice and sweeter than I prefer. I did like this better with a dot of water.
 
Matt
Matt,
Good initial taste but not overall
 
Steve
Steve,
Nice aroma ... heavy on the rye flavor, overpowers a bit but not bad.
 
Jason
Jason,
Good rye. Was surprised buy the smoothness. You can drink this rye straight.
 
NICK
NICK,
Sweet caramel aroma. Sweet initially then spice and pepper come through. More dry/bitter than sweet. Tastes low to middle of the road for for rye whiskey. More of a mixer rye than neat.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Very nice aroma. it greeted me - unlike the previous taster which came out swinging. Smooth, well balanced, and just a sharp enough taste that you enjoy and it mellows out. I will add this to my bar - not sure at the price that listed here -but it's very good.
 
Mark
Mark,
I'm just no a fan of rye.. LoL
 
Ghaison
Ghaison,
A nice rye.
 
Eric
Eric,
Good take of rye spice up front but the finish doesn’t last and fades to an unrefined lacquer taste.
 
jeff
jeff,
Ok but better out at a lower price
 
Steffen
Steffen,
Very smooth, never been huge on rye whiskey, but this is quite good.
 
Chris
Chris,
Could definitely taste the rye and barley. Don't know that I could tell the honey, but it was a smooth earthy slightly sweet taste as well.
 
Matt
Matt,
Decent, but not really my thing. I feel like this would be better in a cocktail.
 
Saman
Saman,
The most drinkable as neat Rye I've had to date!
 
Matt
Matt,
Not bad, but not great. I'm getting young oak on this one with not a lot of sweetness. That's not really too much of a problem with a rye, but admittedly my pallet skews toward the sweet side. Good amount of spice, but it was a bit flat and needed to be rounded out by something I can't put my finger on. Not a bad poor by any stretch, just not my favorite rye.
 
Terrance
Terrance,
My first time trying rye, but not my last! I can't really add much about it, but as an introduction to the spirit, I will be coming back for more.
 
Steve
Steve,
Very drinkable, light tasting compared to other Rye's good for mixing
 
Daniel
Daniel,
An excellent rye in my opinion. In addition to being exceedingly smooth it has a citrus taste to it that very much compliments the rye. It was great on the rocks and I imagine it would be amazing in an old fashioned to boot!
 
Matthew
Matthew,
I love a good rye. While not one of my favorites, this is certainly drinkable. It has the typical spicy, peppery nose that is expected from a Rye, but that is also paired with a touch of caramel. The spiciness carries through onto the taste, but the caramel--almost a salted caramel--is not present until the finish. However, don't expect a heavy sweet palate, this is a brighter, drier whiskey.
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Fairly sharp first bite but transitions to a nice finish. Notes of cinnamon and honey very noticeable. Makes a decent old fashioned.
 
ROBERT
ROBERT,
It was okay, right after the pour all I got was old leather. I let it sit for a while and that subsided. However, overall I thought this was a mediocre rye for the price.
 
Walter
Walter,
My favorite from the Welcome Pack, hits all the spots I love from a good basic sipping whiskey. The honey flavor is cut by the rye and barley, keeping it from running off with the taste. The smell of the fruit is great, I would put this with grilled beef every day.
 
Drew
Drew,
Scotch like. A nice whisky
 
Robert
Robert,
I liked it better sipping - but other then that - it was indistinguishable to me from other rye whiskeys
 
John
John,
Sip slowly and enjoy. Too much at one time will put you off

Lacks depth, many other bottles at this price point that are worth trying before this one.

Ross
Ross,
First Rye. Usually prefer a Highlands or Bourbon but this was very smooth though not as oaky as I prefer. Went pretty good with an Arturo Fuente Don Carlos #2

Beautiful, sweet aroma, but the long, peppery finish was stronger than what I would prefer.

Daniel,
I am very picky with rye whiskey since I am not particular to rye whiskey. This one did not strike my tastes.
 
Allen

One of the best ryes i have tasted, very smooth and not as earthy as most. I am not a normal rye guy but this one could be added to my bar!
 
Shawn

Jeffrey

Not as 'rye-y' as I would have expected, though there were earthy notes. I prefer the profile of Bulleit rye instead.
 
Alexander
Alexander,
Definitely will be added to my bar, the spice is drinkable and a great compliment to a good cigar.
 
Ken
Ken,
I liked the smell of spice and honey however; the initial sip is very stringent. Lots of spice and pepper flavor. The pepper seems to linger longer than I'm comfortable with. Wouldn't have it at my bar.

Gary
Gary,
I didn’t care for the sharp spicy finish, but liked the sweet caramel aroma and the guidance, and justification provided by the spiral.
 
Paul
Paul,
I'll be honest, I didn't know exactly what to make of it. Few Rye felt as though it didn't know exactly what it wanted to be. There is quite a bit of astringent taste in my sample - but - it really grew on me. I found that the spice wasn't overbearing, and this has that nice "rye" flavor that one would expect. I certainly wouldn't kick this out of my bar - but wouldn't necessarily spend a fortune on it either.
 
Pete
Pete,
Not bad. Glad I was able to sample it.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
This was a good rye. Not great but good
 
Barry
Barry,
Smooth, like the caramel, good finish.
 
Michael
Michael,
I definitely tasted the peppered spicy fruit. I think I would add a little water next time to open it up a bit. This was not for me.
 
Linda
Linda,
Not typically a rye drinker, however this was nice. Strong at first but had a nice finish.
 
Lon
Lon,
very nice, smooth.
 
Brian
Brian,
I really liked this rye whiskey. You can smell the malted barely and honey. Nice sweet pleasent smell bringing this to the lips. I didn't need this watered down and was happy with no ice. The tasting coaster was pretty spot on, I tasted the flavor of caramel with the peppered spicy fruit flavors really hitting me on the back end. I would definitely pour myself a glass with a nice robust cigar.
 
Gerald
Gerald,
Spicy and full, full of flavor, nice for sipping
 
Kevin

I am new to the rye whiskey scene, but this is a very tasty rye. I would recommend.
 
Michael
Michael,
Not big on rye but this one is full of flavor. Very enjoyable. Delicate.
 
Eugene
Eugene,
It is an ok drink that is not worthy of note. It is an acquired taste that is not for me.
 
John
John,
Pretty good, but i need other ryes to campare.
 
James
James,
Similar to Breckenridge in flavor with a harsher bite but the smoother finish and simpler, better flavor. But it's similar in that the combination of sweets (especially honey) and in this case barley end up making it taste like cough syrup. Will not buy again.
 
Edgar
Edgar,
It’s ok, nothing special
 
Winnie
Winnie,
Mild and does well with a splash of hot water
 
Marvin
Marvin,
I really enjoyed this whiskey. This is something that I'll for sure purchase. The honey and caramel is the perfect amount. The spice at the end is perfect. I enjoy dry flavors so this was right up my alley. I usually don't like the whiskey, but this has changed my mind.
 
Taylor
Taylor,
Ok whiskey. I liked it but there are others I would prefer.
