A true “estate” Rye Whiskey made from 100% rye grain and aged five years to deliver the heat.

Bendistillery is a play on words. The company is located in Bend, Oregon, and they are in the distilling business. Push those two words together and you get Bendistillery economically using a single letter “d.” They proudly claim the title of “America’s Most Award Winning Small Batch Distillery.” Exactly how many awards is that? We stopped counting when we ran out of fingers and toes of everyone in the office at the time. They own and manage three brands for intoxication consumables — Crater lake Spirits, Bend Spirits, and Ablis CBD Infusions. Crater Lake Spirits came first in 1996.

“Estate” is not a word you see very often these days, but it means something important. If a Spirit is a true “estate” release, it means that everything… we mean EVERYTHING… is done on site in a single location. In the case of Whiskey, that means growing the grains, malting, milling, distilling, aging, AND bottling.

Crater Lake Estate Rye Whiskey is a true estate Whiskey. They even get the water from a private 745-foot deep well drilled into the native lava rock. The mash bill is 100% rye farmed on their little plot of fourteen acres. It’s aged for five years and bottled at nearly perfect 46.5% ABV. As you can imagine, they are only able to produce a few barrels of this dram per year, so the words “limited edition” are not marketing hype.

Smartass Corner:
Crater Lake is a large, deep, very pure lake in Oregon formed by a collapsing volcano. It is part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc containing twenty major volcanoes and more than 4,000 minor ones stretching from Northern California into Canada.

  • vanilla vanilla
  • cinnamon cinnamon
  • oak oak
  • toasted toasted
  • toffee toffee
  • citrus citrus
  • apple apple

Appearance / Color
Golden Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
It smells like a strong Rye Whiskey with notes of ground pepper, Aleppo flake, and cinnamon over lighter notes of vanilla, toasted oak, and butter toffee.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile builds immediately from the aroma with Rye spice being the order of the day, but there is a harmony of distant citrus and apple notes riding shotgun.

Finish
Taken neat the finish is very long, warm, and spicy with a nice sweetness.
