The legend lives on.

One of the first distilleries and producers of Whiskey in the United States dating back to the dawn of the American Revolution which grew into one of the staples of the 19th century Spirit nobility. It stayed as such until it fell from grace in the mid-20th century. There are tons of great stories about the original James E. Pepper who owned the brand and distillery in the 1800s. Our favorite is that he is credited with introducing the Old Fashioned cocktail at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York while on a promotional trip there for his Whiskies.

James E. Pepper is a household name in the American Whiskey culture, so we’re glad the company is back on top where it belongs. To create this renaissance of sorts, the new owners have spent ages going through the archives to recreate the recipes that made the original so iconic. The fans and critics all agree – their Whiskeys are quality through and through.

You only need to look as far as James E. Pepper 1776 Rye Whiskey Sherry Cask to see what we’re talking about. This limited release represents the best of both, old and new world Whiskey making techniques as we’re talking about a traditional American Rye which has been finished like a fine Scotch. The Rye spice comes at you like a blast, while the Sherry gives it its nutty twist. All that rich flavor comes from its high-rye mash bill — a full 90% rye grain — and the fact that it is bottled at 46% ABV without chill filtration.

We just love a good comeback story. The James E. Pepper brand is experiencing their best moment in history. Good for them and good for us.

James,
Harsh but the sherry finish is quite nice if you're up for the bite on the front end.

Just ok.

Allen,
Great for after diners I gave a 9. Definitely not a mixer.
 
Jon
Jon,
Was pleasantly surprised at the flavor of this. Had a slight pepper taste that offset the sherry flavor quite nicely. Flavor profile was spot on
 
Roger
Roger,
Super sweet and spicy, The sherry shines through making it a great after dinner drink.
 
Joseph
Joseph,
I agree with reviews that said there's too much Sherry in this one. I was prepared for it to be a decent bottle but not something I would buy again. Then I made an old-fashioned with it and it totally blew me away. It was probably the best old fashioned I've ever made. Normally, I wouldn't use something at this price point as a mixer. However, for this one, I will buy it again just for that.

Rich,
Makes a great after-dinner brandy alternative.

My palate picks up such overwhelming sherry that, in my opinion, overshadows all others and makes it unenjoyable. Gave it a 3 just for being creative.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Ya it’s really tasty. Smooth and lots of flavors. I’d think even not whiskey drinkers would enjoy this one. Good in most sazeracs or manahattans also.

Made a mean old fashioned with this. Was hoping for a bite more spice. However, was excellent flavor.
