Member Reviews and Ratings of Sagamore Spirit Straight Rye Whiskey
Alex
Alex,
I haven’t tried many ryes, but this was great. Very easy to drink straight. In a sniffer you can smell the rye but a different taste and smooth all the way down. Can definitely see myself purchasing again.
 
Tyler
Tyler,
I’m getting caramelized banana and vanilla in the nose. Maybe also creme brûlée? Taste is sweet up front. Caramel, maybe some cinnamon? Then a nice spice linger in the end. I REALLY like this!
 
Guy
Guy,
Wish I could do 6.5 stars. Overall, it is a fine rye. I wasn't wowed in any particular area. It has a hefty amount of spice considering how light it is. Maybe turning up the ABV would've helped. It finishes ok, but not in a great way. It just kind of spiced me up and then left. Not saying it's a one trick pony, but you need to looked hard for the layers here. Makes a tasty rye & coke.
 
Cliff
Cliff,
One of the best Ryes I have ever had!
 
Eben
Eben,
Very Good!
 
Eddie
Eddie,
Thanks
 
Eddie
Eddie,
Ntmot the bite that I usually get from my Ryes. However, good taste. Not as good as Woodford Reserve Rey but still a good bottle.
 
Robinson
Robinson,
Really wonderful experience with this Rye. It’s spicy 🌶 yet smooth.
 
Jason
Jason,
Goes really well in my wife's Manhattan!
 
Eric
Eric,
The best Rye for the money hands down. Better than others twice the price!
 
Josh
Josh,
Delicicious libation. Makes a hell of an old fashioned. Not quite spicy as some other rye but has a pleasant finish. This was my premium bottle selection for first month amd I would consider buying this again in store.
 
Rick
Rick,
Easy to drink with more flavor than I expected. Not spectacular, but for the price point, I would buy again.
 
Josue
Josue,
Love it
 
Austin
Austin,
I prefer my bourbon/whiskey with a splash of water when I’m drinking, and to me this is a perfect rye for that. Still flavorful, but not overpowering. Overall would recommend/ buy again. Tasting notes are sweet with a little bit of a pine/ spruce flavor to it. Clean finish that leaves a good after taste.
 
Aimee
Aimee,
Smooth and sweet. Good flavor, but the flavor is a little weak.
 
Andee
Andee,
Smooth starts with a spicy note but quickly goes to the fruits, only taste the peach at the end. Will big again!
 
Elise
Elise,
Surprisingly smooth - apricot notes with a strong vanilla/caramel/maple presence. Spicy finish. A very good everyday staple
 
ERIC
ERIC,
Solid rye. Nice balance of vanilla and spice.
 
Matt
Matt,
Very solid rye. Nothing really spectacular but definitely making it a regular!
 
Aaron
Aaron,
solid rye. nothing incredibly unusual, but would recommend to others.
 
Franchesca
Franchesca,
It wasn't too bad, definitely picked up some apricot notes, but it could've been a lot smoother.
 
Eli
Eli,
Loved it
 
gary
gary,
Fantastically smooth for a rye full of sweet aromas and spice. For the price this is a perfect sipping rye that would be a great introductory spirit to anyone wanting to further their palate down the whiskey trail. Great neat or on the rocks, but can lose itself in a cocktail so remember KISS (keep it simple stupid)
 
Shawn
Shawn,
Liked the flavor and how it went down
 
Randall
Randall,
Definitely a great Rye! Smooth and was a hit with my friends. Would definitely buy again, but will try their other concoctions first.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
I’m not sophisticated enough to describe different “notes” and flavors. I can tell you this, though....this stuff is good!
 
Justin
Justin,
Smooth
 
Lee
Lee,
I thought this was quite good. I was surprised I liked a Rye, but it blended well and was smooth
 
David
David,
There are not too many rye whiskeys I like but this I will buy again.
 
Samuel
Samuel,
I really liked it
 
Ira
Ira,
Like it much more than I expected. I've been on a rye kick so I got as my free bottle this quarter. The initial neck pour last night, meh. But boy oh boy oh boy did this puppy open up after a day uncorked. Nose of prunes and apricot with a little rye. Balanced mouthfeel with apricot and rye, a little maple or caramel, with rye up front and tobacco in back. The flavor of rye but without that rye pop. Kind of like a bourbon smoothness but with rye flavors. Really very nice. The tobacco taste lingers in the finish, I feel like I just smoked a Cohiba.
 
Jason
Jason,
Delicious
 
Heather
Heather,
Freakin love it. Drink this rye daily if you can. Better yet use it to turn a friend onto rye. Not terrible spicy just an easy going smooth whisky.
 
Jesse
Jesse,
Rye is my preferred whiskey. High proof, so there’s the initial alcohol burn. That opens to immediate new oak backed by dark stone fruit, like cherries. Sweetness starts to develop, honey and vanilla. The fruit turns to apricot toward the finish. I like sipping this one. Pretty happy with it. I’m interested to see what a Manhattan will taste like with this
 
Darren
Darren,
Loved it. Very mellow. Easy to drink. Just added a small drop of water to open up the rich sweet flavors. Already ordered another.
 
Jennifer
Jennifer,
Very smooth for a Rye! I’m glad I branched out and tried it. It makes a great old fashioned!
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Buttery mouth feel with a sharp after taste. Licorice on the nose. Overall a good rye, but better with an ice cube than straight. I probably wouldn't get this one again as there are much better rye at the same or lower cost.
 
Johnathon
Johnathon,
Very smooth, sweet spicy taste! One of my favorites so far!
 
Joe
Joe,
This will ruin ryes for you because the balance is perfect. Mellow caramel on the front, smooth creamy mouth feel, typical spice and pepper finish. Great way to intro someone to rye
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
This was a great introduction to rye whiskey, and one that I loved. It has a home at my bar - very comfortable to taste with a wonderful follow up.
 
Tod
Tod,
Great rye and I hope they used one of the old "secret"Maryland recipes.
 
Alex
Alex,
Not a bottle of of thought of buying but I’m impressed and would recommend to others! The spice dominates the profile and is with you from nose to finish, but the apricot & citrus bring down to a level that more sensitive palates can enjoy as well.
 
Nathan
Nathan,
Nice dram, very smooth. Mild but agreeable flavor with a hint of spice around the edges and on the finish. Easy drinking but not overly complex.
 
Mark
Mark,
Excellent whiskey. Couldn’t be happier with the purchase, in fact, the bottle didn’t last 2 weeks!
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Very good flavor! Smooth and easy to drink. I had to make sure I didn’t over do it because it goes down so easily.
 
Dave
Dave,
Neat, room temperature, with a few drops of water is my method of allowing Sagamore to show me it's rye prowess. Thumbs up!
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Has a strong bite over rocks. Pretty good with a mixer. I use Sprite.
 
brandon
brandon,
quarterly free bottle. very spicy and aggressive. rye (obviously) notes all the way through and a fairly long finish. very warming. sagamore was upfront about it being a sourced whiskey and I like that in company but rye just isn't my thing. overall a middle of the road experience. probably will not be buying a bottle anytime soon.
 
David
David,
Got this as my quarterly bottle since there was very few options available. Not a big fan.
Gabe
Gabe,
That's how i felt also. It was between this and a WHISTLEPIG 10 Year Old Rye Whiskey (375ml) for me. I wish Flaviar had better options. Reconsidering my subscription now
matthew
matthew,
Also agree about the selections as well as reconsidering my subscription. If this is what is offered on a regular basis ( 3 full bottles and a half ) I don’t really feel it’s worth my time or money. I do like the sampler setup though, wish there was a cheaper option just for that and I could pay full price for what I liked.
Jeff
Jeff,
Caramel/butterscotch on the nose with a spicy palate. Long aftertaste with a slight burn. Tasted neat at room temp.
 
Mark
Mark,
Pretty smooth
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
I was pleasantly pleased! Straight out of the bottle it was direct and to the point going down. Add two drops of water and the complextion changed to a smooth, silky, sweeter taste that sat nicely on the palette.
 
David
David,
First if all, incredible bottle design. I'm keeping this for the "bottle shelf." The whiskey here is unique and good. If it were priced in the low $30s it'd be a steal, but at close to $40 I can find others much better. Would love to see it aged for another few years. Will definitely try again once the distillery has got a few more years under their belt perfecting this.
 
Jordan
Jordan,
Light and smooth. Not as spicy as expected.
 
Athena
Athena,
Warm on the way down with a lingering glow. Harsh for my palate neat, tempered with melted ice it is easier sipping. Currently mixed with cola it brings out the sweet warmth.
 
Robert
Robert,
I’m not normally a rye guy, but this one as delicious.
 
Robin
Robin,
What a surprise. I knew it was a MGP product but I had read good reviews so I jumped at the chance. A nice smooth rye compared to some others I have on the shelf. This is a definite keeper
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Smooth rye (yes, a smooth rye!) with vanilla and fruit up front and a smoothness on the palette that is quite enjoyable. I thought it was cherry, but the flavor spiral says apricot, tobacco and peach. I’m still learning, but makes sense now. Best rye I’ve had for the price yet.
 
John
John,
Enjoyed has full flavor with out being over bearing
 
Scarlett
Scarlett,
Really loving my eye whiskey. Didn't even know I liked rye whiskey until my box arrived!
 
William
William,
Really enjoyed it
 
Anthony
Anthony,
I'm not a big drinker, but I do love scotch. Mainly Johnny Walker. I acquired this bottle of Sagamore Spirit, which is rye whiskey, almost by accident and it was just delicious! So much so that I immediately used my free shipping and credits at Flaviar to buy a second bottle. I'm almost halfway through the first bottle now after a couple of weeks and on the odd evenings that I enjoy a finger or two, I sip it slowly so that I can really enjoy it. Fantastic find.
 
Victor
Victor,
I did not have very high expectations for this for some reason, but, what a pleasant surprise! Definitely a keeper.
 
Matt
Matt,
Wow this beauty has taste, it’s rye flavor is delicious and smooth
 
David
David,
Lighter than I like. Still enjoyable. Better neat.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Great balance between spicy and sweet- a very easy and delightful sipper. The finish is long and the orange is readily apparent
 
Andrew
Andrew,
A great balance of sweet and spicy. The finish is long and the orange really comes through.

Dave,
smooth.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Great tasting rye!

Super tasty, with a particularly complex profile for a straight rye
 
John
John,
I'm usually not a rye guy but this bourbon was smooth with a hint of unique flavor. I enjoyed it.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Liked it. Still developing the knack for catching flavors. Was expecting it to be a bit more bitter as rye in the past with me has not been this smooth.
 
Matt
Matt,
Very good for the price. A sweetness that I don’t usually find in other rye.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Very smooth, spicy no burn, carmel
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Excellent flavor, very smooth. Great for sipping or in a cocktail. Highly recommend.
 
Renea
Renea,
This was my first try at rye whiskey. I was very impressed. Bourbon has always been my go to, but this rye has taken first place for my palate.
 
Arthur
Arthur,
I prefer aged whiskeys so I found this one too simplified...a bit more bite than I care for and just OK. Complexity just not there for me.
 
Richard
Richard,
Really smooth and lice the Carmel. Making me a Rye fan for sure
 
Austin
Austin,
Very smooth, almost sweet tasting. The caramel notes really came through, and i really love the spiceness.
 
Jarvis
Jarvis,
A unique rye that’s delicious and complex. Totally took my be surprise!
 
Dwight
Dwight,
Very smooth and palatable. The Spicy and Caramel notes are noticeable/present. Recommend drinking with whiskey rocks and not ice so as not to miss the more subtle notes. Nice color, too. Would definitely order/drink again.
 
Tristan
Tristan,
Very Smooth
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Very smooth, with a little spice. Really nice.
 
Justin
Justin,
I’m a big fan of rye whiskey. Frankly, it’s my favorite of the family. This whiskey was dangerously smooth with sweet, fruity notes. I think that’s a thing? I don’t really care I guess, I really love rye whiskey and this one was great!
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Fine....flavor seemed to be a little flat
 
Jennifer
Jennifer,
Smooth straight or on the rocks , which really opened it up
 
TOM
TOM,
Quite nice. Smooth finish and seemed to have a little bit of a cheery tone. Not as spicy as I expected based on other reviews.
 
Doug
Doug,
Smooth and spicy. Love it!
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Love every sip. Powerful flavor with honey notes and a soft, smooth mouth feel. Hard to believe it's 41.5%
 
Sooraj
Sooraj,
This rye reduction goes great in the homemade BBQ sauces. The spicy notes in this drink is quite prominent and a small gulp warms you right away. I can see this a good sipper during late fall or early winter. I had this neat and probably won't do that again because of high spice notes.
 
Steve
Steve,
reminds me of Jack
 
Ryan
Ryan,
A whiskey with a nice clean flavor with some spice to it.
 
Jackson
Jackson,
Warm, smooth with great balance of sweetness and spice. Great neat or in a Manhattan.

Nice spicy sipping rye.

I really liked the flavor of this Rye. It was very smooth which made it easy to drink alone, or in my old fashion
 
Michael

Clean tasty Rye. Some spicy notes. Good value. Drinking with just a splash of water.
 
Jaime
Jaime,
Definitely one of the best ryes I've ever had. Smooth and tasty.
 
David
David,
A bit bland
 
ROBERT
ROBERT,
A little spicy, but had a pleasant taste overall. Enjoyed poured over 1 large ice cube.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
The nose has lots of vanilla with a hint of spice. Slight edge on the tongue but strong undercurrents of apricot and vanilla. Not over-powering. Overall very easy to drink and enjoyable.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Very smooth....great neat or with cocktails.
 
David
David,
I really liked it - very flavorful and smooth!
 
Brian
Brian,
I really liked it. It was very smooth and easy to drink.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
It’s ok but not something I would buy on my own. Mellow taste, but not overly flavorful.
 
Jim
Jim,
This is smooth and a nice whiskey, but it is missing the spice and finish of a more traditional rye. Seemed to lend to sweetness, more like a bourbon.
 
Michael
Michael,
Very drinkable. Would buy again.
 
Wendy
Wendy,
My new favorite. Smooth and lovely.
 
Charles
Charles,
Easy and approachable rye.
 
Michael
Michael,
Smooth? Yes. Decent flavor? Yes. Will it knock your socks off? Definitely not. ...middle of the road rye.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Sweeter than anticipated which was a surprise to be sure, but a welcomed one. That rating was for both my Star Wars and whiskey enthusiasts.
 
James
James,
If all Rey whiskey is as harsh as this one, then you can count me out on future tastings. It was better after being allowed to breathe, but water was still needed in order to cut the bite. Not for me.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Really enjoyable sipping whiskey.
 
Andy
Andy,
Tasty rye. Smooth, not too sweet. With ice, more flavors presented themselves. I’ll buy it again. The bottle itself is a near shape too👍🏻
 
Michael
Michael,
I don’t care for rye bread but wanted to try. Not for me. Light rye taste on the palette. Added water made pretty good but I really hate rye.
 
Jim
Jim,
Excellent flavor!
 
Cory
Cory,
This Whiskey is fantastic. A wonderful first choice for the club membership. Had to stop myself before i finished it all in one evening.
 
Alison
Alison,
I purchased this as a show of support for small distilleries, and I was pleasantly rewarded! This is easy and satisfying to sip, with a smooth texture and layered taste. Perfect for a warm weather rye-on-the-rocks kind of day.
 
Jay
Jay,
a bit too medicine like for my taste. Didn't enjoy it as much as I do my go to Knob creek. I usually drink old fashioneds. Perhaps neat or with ice I'd like it more but...
 
Patrick
Patrick,
Neat the flavors are quite mellow. With a couple of ice cubes, the flavors open up and have more depth. Slightly smokey, but more sweet and notes of vanilla and brown sugar.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Really enjoyed this. Smooth and easy to grink.
 
James
James,
A little smoky. Smooth.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
Good sipping whiskey. Pleasant neat.

Very smooth.. one of the best Brandys I’ve had

I don't think that this bottle is a Brandy, it tends to lean more towards the Rye whiskey style.

It is a good rye for someone like me who generally don’t like ryes

I really was surprised how good this was, especially for the price. I will keep this one on hand as my go to.

Just not my style.

Smooth, mild rye. Good for sipping.

Fairly smooth, flavorful Rye. A hint of sweetness to it makes it a pleasurable sipping Rye. Not a top-end Rye, but a solid everyday beverage.

VERY smooth. A great sipping drink when enjoying a cigar with friends
 
John
John,
A good flavored Rye. Easy to drink alone or blended.

BRYAN
BRYAN,
I'm new to Rye whisky so this is my first, I think it's delicious regardless that I haven't had any other Rye to compare it to. I think it is very smooth with a little spice to it.

A beautiful aroma and very smooth with just enough sweetness. A very drinkable rye

Solid rye
 
Edward

It was nice for the money, but not as smoothe as my Basil Hayden dark Rye or Angels Envy Rye.
 
Andrea
Andrea,
Very smooth, I really enjoyed for being a Vodka girl.
 
Walter
Walter,
For a rye, which I normally don't go out of my way to drink, this is rye is really good. Super smooth and a nice immediate flavor you can enjoy. As a traditional straight bourbon drinker, I believe this rye is up there as a contender to some of my all time favorite whiskeys.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
WOW, hard to put these flavors anx enjoyments in words. Great on the rocks dressed as an old Fashion or just a splash of water
 
Burton
Burton,
Decent whiskey. A good rye for those new to this spirit. It gives you hints of the unique spice of rye without overpowering the palate. Get it. Your guests will like it.
 
Allan
Allan,
I like this and I am usually a scotch drinker and with some friends bourbon. It comes across to me as light and fruity, my first taste of rye.
 
Michael
Michael,
My wife, daughter and I tasted this versus Sazerac, our house rye. We felt this one was good, but still like Sazerac a little better. Have nt tried it that way yet but expect it to make a mean Old Fashioned.
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Strong on the palate with heat and oak. Mellows into a even finish with hints of vanilla. A good sipping whiskey.
 
john
john,
Must be neat, water/ice destroys the wonderful taste
 
Joe
Joe,
What a surprise on this Whiskey. Did not expect it to be that good honestly. I mean a Maryland (no offense) take on a Bourbon?? This is a great Rye whiskey, and can be drank either on a block/sphere or used to make a great cocktail.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Mixes wonderfully in cola and has a caramel coffee taste in the right ratio, def recommend for someone with a mellow sweet tooth
 
Matthew

Smooth nose with a hint of fruitiness on the back end.

Normally not a rye drinker but this was really smooth. No bite. Not spicy at all; rather, a Full bodied drink with oak and vanilla scents. My go to is normally scotch. But this will definitely become a staple in my home bar.

My favorite straight rye whiskey so far.
 
Casey
Casey,
Not usually a big fan of rye, but this is smooth. There is no after bite. The smell of the cork does not disappoint or mislead the taste.
 
John
John,
Very good with a cigar. Complements the tobacco with a spicy flavor. Very good and has a great finish. Before Flaviar, I never considered this as a whiskey I would keep in my bar, but now it will become a staple.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Smooth and sophisticated. Definitely a change of pace from standard rye fare, but in a great way. Could be a bit of an acquired taste, but a taste worth acquiring.

Smooth rye
 
Robert
Robert,
I'm not much for Rye, but this one is smooth and enjoyable. The hint of Jasmine was a nice change and very noticeable on the front, with the spice coming in on the finish. I'll likely keep this one rotating on the shelf. Cool bottle too.
 
Jasson
Jasson,
Not a huge rye fan, normally a scotch drinker, but this is very, very good. Smooth, sweet attack with a mild palette, and a subtle rye finish. I am likely to order another bottle of this after receiving it as a freebie from a referral. Good stuff. 8/10
 
Sadie
Sadie,
If you’re a fan of rye you’ll enjoy this one. All the flavor from a rye you’d want with a good finish and not too much going on. Easy drinker with minimal bite
 
James

Amazingly smooth for a rye. Great flavor. Unfortunately I finish this bottle with friends in one sitting so I will definitely be purchasing another.
 
Jitendra
Jitendra,
Just usual... no complexity
 
Robert
Robert,
I like this rye. Had nice oak and caramel notes straight out of the bottle. I found it really smoothed out and opened up well with one ice cube... I even noticed some fruitiness once it opened up. Nice rye.
 
Gene
Gene,
Nice , a friendly rye with taste and character. Very drinkable a tad sweet but A great sip. I will keep this one in “the rotation “

Daniel
Daniel,
This was my first real adventure into rye whiskey... I was expecting it to be harsher and “spicier” than it was. I was pleasantly surprised that it was sweet and smooth and every other thing you want a nice whiskey to be.

Matthew,
Mixed with Coke and was surprised how well it blended.

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.

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,
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.

Nice flavor. Pretty strong

Pretty good, tastes a little spicy in a good way. Not very sweet. A classic rye.

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,
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

Lovely, mild, not overwhelming, but very tasty and clean.

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.
