Bringing prohibition and originality back to Bourbon. 
 
One of the first distilleries and producers of Whiskey in the United States dating back to, unsurprisingly, 1776 and grew into one of the most popular drinks in the 19th century and stayed as such until it fell from grace in the mid 20th century. But that has all changed, in the last few years the brand has seen a revival and is back in the spotlight again for all the right reasons. 
 
To create this renaissance of sorts, the new owners, Georgetown Trading Co. have spent ages going through the archives to recreate the pre, mid and post prohibition recipes that made the 1776 so iconic. This release is straight Bourbon made with 90% rye and bottled at proof strength of 50%.

Stephen
Stephen,
Excellent taste at a great price!
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Aggressively flavorful. Long lasting flavor at the back of the throat. Definitely a slap in the face for someone new to ryes, however, not in a bad way. Not sure yet whether I like it or love it.
 
Bhavesh
Bhavesh,
It was okay, there is a good amount of rye in there for rye lovers and the whiskey itself is very smooth. That being said, I couldnt get any other flavors beyond that.
 
Steve
Steve,
This was OK. I'm a huge fan of Pepper's bourbon, so I'd thought I'd give this a try, and it had plenty of rye kick, but by the end of the bottle, I was done with it. To me, Sazerac was better, and cheaper to boot.

Smoky. It pairs really well with a cigar.
 
Brendan
Brendan,
Mixes well in cocktails, but the citrus notes are too overpowering for me when I sip it neat. I pick up a lemon-like pine-sol that’s a little off-putting.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Not a huge fan of rye to begin with but was disappointed in this one.
 
Michael
Michael,
A good straight rye. My expectations were set a bit high for this re-emerging distillery. I prefer other straight rye whiskeys but this one, with its edgy spice flavors makes and excellent Old Fashioned. Cheers!

James,
Smooth spicy rye with a distinct and delicate aftertaste. One of my favorites.

A good straight rye that is smooth and good flavor.
 
Spencer
Spencer,
This is really excellent. Now my go-to “affordable” rye. Great blend of spice and sweet. Definitely rye, but doesn’t feel like an assault of spice. The nose is, to me, not super interesting but it drinks great.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
this is a tough one for me b/c i don't get much on the nose that i recognize. Taste is pretty good but I don't enjoy the smell of this one.

Pretty good rye. Runs a tad hot. Brief butterscotch on the tongue. Still prefer George Dickel over this but it’s a respectable sipping rye. Would buy it again.

Greg,
A mighty fine rye whiskey from the home of bourbon that drinks smooth and especially enjoys a splash of water. Reasonably priced. One of my go to whiskeys for an evening repose with a good book.

Craig,
Picked this bottle up on a business trip, I love Rye and though I knew nothing of the brand, had never even seen it before the price made trying it a no-brainer. Wow was I pleasantly surprised. I really liked it at first sip but a few days later, after the bottle had been opened and it breathed a little it was truly incredible. I kept sipping and saying to myself there’s no way it can be this good! Best $30 bottle I’ve bought in a very long time.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
1776 Rye cannot be beaten at its price point. Hell, a lot of much more expensive ryes can't compare. The company has been in the game for a while and it shows. 1776 is rich, spicy, but not too sweet. It's great straight, on the rocks, or as the base for a beautiful old fashioned.

Very good Rye as they put it, unmistakable
