Buffalo Bill’s libation.
From the birthplace of the extraordinary U.S. showman William “Buffalo Bill” Cody, Le Claire in Iowa hails this microdistillery Mississippi River Distilling that lays on the banks of the river Mississippi. Put together the idea to recreate the same Rye Whiskey as Buffalo Bill would want to drink, Rye sourced from Illinois and dedication from two brothers and you get yourself a piece of American dream. Started just back in 2010 Burchett brothers are hands on on experimentation and learning from each batch to get the next one one step further.
Cody Road Rye is aged in half-sized barrels to maximize the impact of oak and is made from 100% Rye mash sourced from the Wherry Brothers farm who grow it in Fulton, Illinois. They focus on the value of fresh grains from farms within a half hour’s drive of the distillery. Distilled to honour one of America’s greatest heroes of the Wild West, this drop surely packs just that spiciness and free spirit, enjoy neat or mix in any cocktail that calls for Rye infusion!

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color 
Pale amber.
Nose / Aroma
Mild but full of grain and spices on the nose, some honey and vanilla action going on. Hints of apricot and wildflower are also present.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
Maple, fruits and brown sugar get carried away with that rye closure.
The non expected complexity comes to life here… Oak and pepper come to life and don’t leave easily coming back to your nose with every sip.

Ratings & Reviews
Definitely sweeter than your traditional rye but still has a bit of spice hiding in the finish. Honey and orange blossom up front with a bit of young oak. A different take on rye but not bad. Not as smooth as I would want in a higher rated spirit though.
Sweet, a little bit of kick. Not my type
Sweet with a bite, but not that smooth
Young and nasty--and not in a good way!
This was not my favorite. The taste was thin and the alchohol came through. Tasted vaguely industrial.
