Big and bold at barrel proof to remind you what it means to be a Rye Whiskey.

George Ross founded Rossville Distillery in 1847. Aside from a brief switch to industrial production during Prohibition, it has been producing fine Spirits continuously since then. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions it has been owned by Seagram’s, Pernod Ricard, and others over the years. But since 2011 it has been the flagship of MGP — one of the largest producers of Whiskey, Gin, and other Spirits.

To kick off the Rossville line, they created two versions of their signature Straight Rye Whiskey — one at 47% ABV and one at 56.3% ABV. Rossville Union Master Crafted Barrel Proof Straight Rye Whiskey is the bold one with a smooth finish.

While they use the same mash bills, the combination of the two is proprietary. It is a tasty amalgamation of two of their core Rye mash bills. The first is 95% rye and 5% malted barley to deliver a nice Rye kick. The second is a 51% rye, 45% corn, and 4% malted barley to provide a balance of sweetness. The blend is well-balanced, aged five to seven years in new oak. The release is limited to just 83 barrels, so get as much as you can as soon as you can.

Wayne,
Golden honey color, pleasant mildly sweet aroma, nice complex flavors, medium heat going down. If you like Rye you will enjoy this and order it again

For the price ...no brainer. Friendly sipper with a clean finish
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Sweet on the nose yet also herbaceous. Lots of flavor in this one, takes you on a roller-coaster of sweet and orange citrus notes that go into dill, rye, and mint notes with a oakey finish

Matthew
Matthew,
Appearance: Color is copper, decent legs... Nose: Heavy on Rye grain and spice, with subtle cherry sweetness... Palate: Rye spice galore. Cherry cola. Licorice. Potent... Mouthfeel: Tongue coating, intense... Finish: Baking spice, more licorice, coherent with palate... Overall: A perfectly coherent, intense Rye by the master's of Rye. Fantastic, strong flavors. Only thing missing is a little more depth.
