The wonderful American-Portugal connection.
 
When Sagamore Spirit opened its distillery on the bank of Patapsco River in Baltimore in 2017, they had a clear mission: put Maryland back on the Whiskey-making map by reviving the "Maryland-style" Whiskey that almost disappeared after the repeal of Prohibition. They're proofing their Whiskeys with limestone-filtered water from their farm, which reportedly fuels local racehorses who are born winners.
 
With their Port Finish Rye Whiskey, they've created a sumptuous story that starts with a blend of the best Straight Ryes and ends with a vinaceous twist: a finish in Port wine casks from Portugal and Maryland. The result is a full and complex flavor profile with fruity notes of plum and cherry. It's like a wonderful crossover episode of your favorite Baltimore TV show and a hit series from Portugal. Also, it's officially the World's best Rye Whiskey according to the 2019 San Francisco World Spirit Competition. Enhance your evenings with a neat one or pour it in a Manhattan cocktail.

Brendan
Brendan,
Very good rye. The port finish and rye spice play nicely off each other. Easy to sip even at the higher ABV.

Strong Rye. Best suited for a cold day by a fire.
 
Paul
Paul,
It has a smooth velvet mouth feel and great spice. My first rye I’ve purchased and I loved it
 
Robert
Robert,
Dried fruit, wood, leather. Bitter note and a decent finish and thats about it. I can’t figure out how this won “rye” of the year in San Francisco. Its not terrible but not great. R. Becker
