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.

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.

The finish is long and rambling from pops of cinnamon to sweet after-burn.
Ratings & Reviews
great sweet nutty bourbon!
Just opened the bottle. So far I am a fan. Drank it straight. Nice burn going down, but not too harsh.
One of the best that I’ve ever tasted. Wonderful nosing with a nicely balanced spice blend on the tongue. Lingering finish of dark fruits and traditional bourbon flavors. Love it! Love it! Love it!
Lovely nose of caramel and sweet vanilla. Starts with sweet caramel, finishes with a slightly spicy burn. I believe this would make an incredible old fashioned, but it also stands solidly on its own.
Great whiskey from a newish name
Won my double blind flight for the 110-115 proof whiskeys. Right up there with Russell's Reserve. Heavy caramel and vanilla in the nose. Good buy.
I bought the regular New Riff bourbon several months back at a specialty liquor shop in Los Angeles on a whim and really loved it. Probably would have graded it an 8 or 9 out of 10 stars. This one.....not so much. It just didn't seem as full-flavored to me. That's not to say it was bad, it was actually pretty decent, but just didn't stack up to the non-single barrel bottle I had last time. I did notice that some distilled water opened it up a bit and brought out some of the more nuanced flavors which makes sense given the high proof of this. If I end up buying another bottle of this in the future, I will definitely go for the regular as opposed to the single barrel version.
Oh man, that Vanilla. It's good. My bottle was 105 proof and drank more like a 90. Lots of complexity in this, and a great balance of smoothness and spice. This is my first New Riff of any kind, excited to try others.
Great up front flavor of toffee and almonds. Good vanilla at the back. Finish is a little harsh but might try adding a few drops of water next time.
New Riff Single Barrel is my new favorite pour. Great taste with flavor's galore and just the right smooth finish! Love it, way more than the small batch.
Excellent on the nose - strong start but finishes clean, hints of butterscotch and vanilla. One of my favorites!
Really good spice and oak flavor followed by a slight cherry
One of the most flavorful bourbons I’ve tasted. Definitely the most flavorful at this price point. Eye: deep gold Nose: fruit, caramel, syrup Taste: Rye, Sweet, Caramel Mouth feel: medium to light Finish: long
This is my new favorite. It is pricey, but the flavor is spot on.
I will be buying spirits from this company again. Well done.
Such a spicy bourbon! Lovethe rye, cinnamon and unique cornbread aroma. I paid $52 for a store pick.
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.
