One of our favorite Straight Rye Whiskies finished in Cognac casks.

Like nearly all new spirits companies, for the first few years Sagamore Spirits purchased custom formulated distillate from other production facilities. It’s the only way to get started these days. But last year they moved production to their new, private distillery with a very nice visitor center in Baltimore, Maryland. Cheers to them! The name comes from the Sagamore Farm limestone spring water used to cut their Whiskey to proof. They produce a range of seven award-winning, all-American Rye Whiskeys and you should try them all because they’re mighty good stuff.

Sagamore Cognac Finish has actually been around for a few years, but it was only available at the distillery tasting center. But repeat demand convinced them to make it a standard offering.

It’s simple — don’t mess with success. They take their signature Straight Rye Whiskey and finishing it ex-Cognac casks. And in case you forgot, their signature Spirit is their own high-Rye and low-Rye blended to taste for the perfect balance at an impressive 50.5% ABV. Upon debut, the Cognac Finish was immediately awarded a Double Gold at the Denver International Spirits Competition.

Appearance / Color
Warm Amber.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aromas are definitely Rye-like with bold notes of cinnamon crumb-cake, apricot, and menthol with a hint of Cognac-like florals.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
With just a drop of water the flavors open up with autumn fruits, pecan pralines, and toasted wood.

Finish
The finish is long with lingering Rye spice and toffee notes.

The brand is named after a thoroughbred horse racing farm, Sagamore Farm, 22 miles from the Sagamore distillery.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
