True American Rye with history.
American Rye Whiskey is closely connected to the first colonies and Prez Numero Uno, George Washington. G-Wash made his own Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon, producing large amounts of it till the day he died. His recipe was a lot of rye, a load of corn, and a dash of malted barley. This kind of Whiskey was huge in the era of saloons. A century after the Prohibition, it’s having its second coming, courtesy of the first distillery built in the town of Lexington, KY, after that booze-banning period. It’s called Town Branch and it began bottling in 2012.
Town Branch Rye Whiskey is a delicious revival of the old Maryland style Spirit. Its ratio is 55% rye, 30% corn, and 15% malted barley. It’s bottled at 100 Proof after four years of maturing in oak. The balanced nose and the tamed spiciness will appeal to both the Rye-lovers and Bourbon-heads. The grains are truly celebrated in this dram – although, according to the producer, do add some water to wake the best flavors up.
