Old school Rye Whiskey with a Sherry twist
 
In 1795, America still had its first president, the O.G. Washington, and there were only fifteen states in the Union. That’s also when Jacob Beam sold his first barrels of corn Whiskey, which wasn’t even called Bourbon yet – not for decades. He concocted his Old Hake Beam not far away from where Limestone Branch distillery stands today. One of Jake’s descendants had an incredibly cool name: Minor Case Beam, and this Rye expression is dedicated to him – an innovative distiller who had to give everything up when Prohibition came.
 
Today, Minor’s great-grandsons, Steve and Paul Beam, continue the family’s long tradition. They wanted to create a fine and soft Rye Whiskey Minor Case Beam would’ve made if there were no Prohibition. This two-year-old Rye was finished in cream Sherry casks for eight months and it successfully balances sweet fruitiness, warm spices and oak. Don’t let its age fool you, either: Minor Case Rye is a masterpiece in a lovely old school bottle, and wonderfully complex. Raise the glass to not living during the Prohibition.

Corner
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but a final filter through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates Tennessee Whiskey from its Kentucky cousin. The finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.

Shockingly good taste with a light Sherry at the end

Paige,
Not gonna lie, I was skeptical AF with the 2 Year age statement but wow did this dram from Minor Case deliver! Caramel and vanilla are obvious on the nose that leads into a mellow spice and oak note with hints of fruit on the palette followed by a long sweet sherry finish. Literally mind blown with how clean this Rye is. Well done!

Jason,
I am new to Rye. I think I might be more of a scotch guy. This is just a little too harsh for my taste.

Excellent rye. Pour let sit and it gets a nice caramel note. Definitely will be a keeper in my collection.

Sweet on the tongue. Hints of maple and cherry, nice finish. I really like the aftertaste, it’s quite smooth and mellow. A very good rye.
