A bright, peppery, and fruity-forward Rye Whiskey with Brooklyn roots.
New York Distilling Company opened its doors in 2011. Co-founded by Allen Katz and Tom Potter and located in Brooklyn just across the East River from Manhattan, the distillery is attached to their local bar called The Shanty. This allows them to taste the Spirits they create and sample new formulations live with customers every night. The first product was a classic Gin, but the lineup has been expanded to three Gins, a handful of Rye Whiskies, and flavored Spirits.
Ragtime Rye Single Barrel Flaviar Community Selection is a special Flaviar edition of their popular Ragtime Rye. Allen has hand-selected the cask and bottled it at a perfectly potent 56% ABV. It uses the same mash bill as its sisters in the still house — 72% New York rye, 16% corn, and 12% malted barley — and the bottle looks like it fell out of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel about the Prohibition era.
Appearance / Color
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is painted in rich hues of black plum, eggnog, vanilla, and menthol.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The taste has plenty of Rye spice, but also a surprising amount of fruit notes — from exotic mango to rhubarb and marmalade — with granola, cinnamon, and black pepper blooming on the back palate.
The finish is long and warm and spicy and fruity.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Ragtime Rye Single Barrel Flaviar Member Select 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.
