A high-rye Bourbon that kicks into high gear just begging for you to pour a Manhattan.

The Honeoye Falls Distillery sounds like it sits in the mountains of Cairngorm National Forest in the Highlands, doesn’t it? But actually, this craft distillery sits across the street from a tractor supply store in upstate New York about seven miles south of Rochester. It was founded by Teal Schlegel and Scott Stanton in 2014 — Teal is the chemist, Scott the business guy. They opened their doors creating Gin and immediately started aging Whiskey. They inaugurated a tasting room and lounge just two years later. Today they serve up a line of nine hand crafted Spirits from Gin and Whiskey to Absinth and Vodka.

Red Saw Bourbon Whiskey is named after the original business in their small town of Honeoye Falls. Seems that those falling waters power a sawmill back in the day. All of the grain in this Spirit is locally sourced from farms in Monroe County, and those grains include 51% corn, 34% rye, and 15% malted barley. And that barley is floor malted like they used to do back in Scotland before everything got all corporate-like. It’s produced in very small batches — so you may notice subtle differences from batch to batch. And it’s bottled at a tidy 48% ABV, so you will not have any difficulty tasting it. It’s just begging to be shaken into your next Manhattan.

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

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Light Chestnut

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma smells a lot like cinnamon granola clusters followed by warm cornbread and barley-induced florals.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is viscous and rich, but hot with tons of classic and youthful high-rye notes of baking spices, charred oak, black pepper, brittle toffee, and vanilla.

Finish
The finish is long and warm with a peppery bite at the end.

John
John,
Not bad for a young bourbon, but why drink young bourbon when there is so much 4+ yo bourbon out there.

Kesi,
Unique taste particularly up front but eventually we adapted. Nice change-up but not something to add to the regular rotation.

Phelan,
Glad is was my quarterly bottle and I didn't "pay" for it. Not bad with a couple of cubes or splash of water. May get a bottle to keep on bar, but won't be one of my go to bottles.

Benjamin,
If you like CORN Whiskey, then you’ll like this....like it more than me. This was my quarterly bottle. I didn’t research it enough and didn’t notice it’s a corn whiskey. It’s better than most corn whiskeys I’ve had, but still not a fan.
 
Eddie
Eddie,
Has a sharp sting at first that quickly dissipates. A bit dull. Not too sweet. Decent without ice.
