Sagamore Spirit is on a mission: putting Maryland back on the Whiskey map.

When award-winning Sagamore Spirit opened its waterfront distillery’s doors and fired up its copper stills, it had two things in mind: turn out rye that would put Maryland back on the whiskey-making map, and create a destination to delight and educate spirits lovers from near and far. One year, two million pounds of milled grain, and 30,000 visitors later, the plan is well ahead of schedule.

Sagamore Straight Rye was rated 95/100 in The Tasting Panel Magazine, 2017, “an exquisite nose of peach and jasmine” with additional tones of spiced apricot nectar, caramel cream, tobacco leaf and orange rind present in taste as well…”

The taste harkens back to the 19th century, when Maryland farmers discovered the benefits of distilling whiskey from the distinctive grain – perfect neat or in their signature Black-Eyed Rye Cocktail.

SmartAss corner:
The water that comes straight up from a limestone spring at the farm reportedly fuels the local race horses that are said to be winners.

Ratings & Reviews
Cheryl
Cheryl,
Sharp, warm finish, good oak balance, soft enough of a cherry finish that you don’t even think about it until later. Well charred and very light tannin accents.
 
Scott
Scott,
A lot smoother than I expected. Rye's usually punch me in the face. This one still brought some burn, but offered a lot of back end flavor.
 
James
James,
I like the bite of pepper at the beginning. Very tasty finish.
 
Evan
Evan,
Light golden color, I taste a lot of spice, some caramel and vanilla . I'm a bourbon drinker, but good enough to spur my curiosity with ryes.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
New to Rye. Nice smooth vanilla whiskey.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Nice flavor. Pretty strong
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Pretty good, tastes a little spicy in a good way. Not very sweet. A classic rye.
 
Matt
Matt,
Much more flavor and complexity compared with other rye whiskeys. A nice addition

Leanna,
Delicious! It has the spiciness that I expect from a rye, but much smoother than I'm used to. Could easily be a sipping whiskey

It was a nice change up!
 
Michelle
Michelle,
I find this easy-sipping. Not as full-flavored as some other rye’s i have tried. Not sure that this is one i would keep around all the time. BUT, it is easy to drink and good intro to rye.
 
Amanda
Amanda,
Spicy on the front a bit of a harsh finish but a did Rye overall

Kihm,
Lovely, mild, not overwhelming, but very tasty and clean.
 
Michael
Michael,
The nose on this rye is absolutely incredible (vanilla, spice, and, yes, jasmine). The taste is not quite as sweet as I expected given the nose, but wonderful nonetheless and quite well-balanced. I got this as a welcome bottle when I signed up (I might not otherwise have tried it)...but I will definitely have this again. I also love the bottle design and shape. I can't wait to try more from Sagamore Spirit.
 
Tom
Tom,
Another MGP product, but pleasant enough. Not a lot of complexity, a bit sweet for a rye, but totally quaffable.
 
Jeanne
Jeanne,
Tastes a little thin to me. Prefer the cask strength. Good for mixed drinks.
 
Bradley
Bradley,
I'm just now getting into rye. I'm more of a bourbon guy, but I really like this. Very Sweet taste with a light spice undertone. I'm also not a pro Whiskey taster.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Tasty Rye, easy drinking with a great sweetness without losing the true Rye quality. Great for Manhattans.
 
Roger
Roger,
A very good drinking rye whiskey . Light on the rye with little to no burn. Its not going to knock your socks off, but I don’t it was made for that. Its just an inexpensive enjoyable daily drink.
 
Harrison
Harrison,
Great Rye Whiskey from Maryland. Spice balance is complemented by the subtle notes of fruit. Brought me back to being a RYE fan.
 
Larry
Larry,
Good for Maryland distillers attempting to reclaim the Rye! This is a worthwhile entry, spicy and flavor forward but a little light on the palate.
