A delightful and powerful Single Barrel release with a surprisingly complex, award-winning palate.

Ken Lewis has been selling Spirits for more than thirty years. He owned and ran one of the most successful retail stores in the country — The Party Source in Bellevue, Kentucky. He sold the company to his employees in 2014 and used the funds to launch New Riff Distillery with co-founder Jay Erisman in Newport that same year — just across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. As head distiller Brian Sprance was distilling Spirits and laying down casks for aging, they sourced Spirits from MGP in Indiana and sold them under the O.K.I. brand (now retired). They are now releasing their own complete line of house-crafted Spirits and are an official stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.

When you are a Bourbon-lover and want flavorful expressions of character you choose Single Barrel releases. New Riff Single Barrel Bourbon is the rare example of delicious character with consistency where in counts — in quality. And that takes quite a bit of skill. It all starts with New Riff’s core Bourbon recipe and a mash bill of 65% corn, 30% Rye, and 5% malted barley that are certified 100% non-GMO. It’s aged four years, bottled at a barrel-proof of 55% ABV, and is another Double-Gold winning dram.

What does New Riff Single Barrel Bourbon taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in New Riff Single Barrel Bourbon and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Warm Mahogany.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is classic high-rye Bourbon with notes of caramel and baking spices with touches of vanilla and menthol.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is surprisingly complex with sweet vanilla and mint at first followed by glowing Rye spices from clove and cinnamon to black pepper and back again.

Finish
The finish is long and rambling from pops of cinnamon to sweet after-burn.

Emily,
Such a spicy bourbon! Lovethe rye, cinnamon and unique cornbread aroma. I paid $52 for a store pick.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
I bought this because I like to try new bourbons and saw it got some really nice press from the 2019 ISC. While I enjoyed the bottle, I have a hard time justifying the price. $55 is a steep price in my area considering the amount of high quality bourbons in the $25-$40 range. This is an enjoyable bourbon, especially with one cube to help it open...but I find it overpriced.

Store pick, sweet upfront pretty hot on the backend but calms down with a little water.
