Outstanding Kentucky Rye Whiskey.
It's a story as old as the universe: boy likes Scotch, boy meets girl, girls likes Bourbon, boy likes Bourbon, boy and girl start making booze. We’ve all been there, right? Meet Kaveh Zamanian and his sweetheart Heather. It’s a true story and the booze they’re making is Louisville-based Rabbit Hole. It’s all about passion, beauty, and elegance, and a simple mission: bring an extra renaissance to the Bourbon renaissance.
But what is Bourbon without its best buddy, Rye Whiskey? Kaveh's Master Distiller, Larry Ebersold (formerly at Pernod-Ricard) concocted a perfect combination of rye (95%) and malted barley (5%) and created an outstanding Rye Whiskey. It spent more than two years in #4 charred American white oak barrels (made by the Kelvin Cooperage), but don't let its youth fool you. The palate is balanced, the nose alluring, and finish quite impressive. The generous 47.5% ABV is also always welcome.
*Rabbit Hole has recently changed their labels, and as the original labels are being phased out, there is still a chance that you might receive a bottle different than what is pictured. But rest assured, the liquid remains the same, regardless of the label.
