A fresh Rye Whiskey aged with pecan wood chips for a spicy praline flavor profile. 

John Sharp and his son Jimmy ran a business in Montgomery, Alabama. But that business required a lot of travel. When Jimmy’s daughter Lily was born in 2014, they knew they had to start something different. They founded the John Emerald Distilling Company — the first legal distillery in Alabama since Prohibition — in the tiny town of Opelika and named it after John’s father. They make a Rum, Gin, Vodka, Whiskey, and their signature Alabama Single Malt Whiskey.

Most of the time, when you hear "double wood" you think of two barrels. But John Emerald has a bit of a different take on it for their Purveyor’s Series. In the case of John Emerald Purveyor’s Series Double Wood Rye, it means aging in new American oak as you would expect, but the barrel has been filled with charred pecan wood chips. The combination of wood influences pops out a New Orleans style praline flavor to the Spirit.

Arvind
Arvind,
As close to a scotch that one can get in the US of A. Peaty & woody after taste. Excellent with a cigar.
 
Bill
Bill,
Smoky, spicy goodness with a pleasant finish.
 
Franklin
Franklin,
Smokey sweet. Nice woody tone. Starts and ends sweet, but a different sweet from bourbon. Definitely a different tone of Rye
 
Andre
Andre,
Great flavors, spiciness and finish.
 
Michael
Michael,
I’m not a big rye drinker, but I’m always up for something new. This rye whiskey is interesting. The flavor of vanilla stands out, and it does seem to have a sweet, sugary taste. I’m still trying to find the right cigar to pair it with. Overall? Yeah... I like it.
 
Brian
Brian,
Enjoyed having a rye that tastes a little different. Stronger flavored. Pecan smoke.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
A smooth rye, you can taste the pecan and hints of Smokey flavor. There is not a sweet flavor like similar pecan flavored liquor. This has a bold woody flavor.

William,
Forgot to mention I poured it down all out. Just don't
 
William
William,
Just don't. I bought this after getting a bottle of the Purveyors series bourbon as my quarterly bottle. I had high hopes and expectations for the rye. It's a mess, Tasting notes: Burnt wood, regret, rye spice and chocolate

Sean
Sean,
The only bottle I've ever got that I had to drain pour because it was undrinkable, very harsh, new makey, weird finish. The final attempt to make it passable was mixing it in coke, something I rarely do, and even then it was disgusting. Gave it two stars for the attempt but this missed the mark in every way.

I expected more of a Pecan flavor, a little disappointing

Smooth, flavorful, great finish. The flavor spiral is very accurate. Love the praline flavor and warm spicy finish.
 
Mark
Mark,
This one will not make my buy list again. I hoped this rye would have a smooth taste, but it is a very harsh alcohol start, without any real pleasing notes to finish. I will be using it in mixed drinks only.

Liked it smooth
 
Charles
Charles,
VERY oak forward. It almost overwhelms the bourbon taste. However, if you like the intense pecan flavor in your bourbon, you may like this. Personally, it is a stretch for me to say I enjoy this with a bit of water only. However, in a mixed drink like an old fashioned, it adds a unique flavor profile.
