Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Aaron,
I was not a fan. For me, there was too much oak and smoke flavor.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Tresa,
Strong oakey flavor that is followed favorable by some spice and sweetness. Didnt care for it when it hit my nose but after a couple sips I am a fan of this one. Just sipped it neat.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Matt,
Oaky and spicy with a bit of sweetness/sugar. Loooong enjoyable finish. Straightforward sipping rye. A little water makes this one much more enjoyable.

Dan,
A bit on the peppery side, but very enjoyable
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey

Only a little flowery. I get more grain and sweet. I am a fan of this one.

Skyler,
Strong oak taste and somewhat overpowering other flavors.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Daniel,
Aroma: wood and slight (yet pleasant) musk/leather. Taste: herbal spices, oak, hint of pepper. Good warmth. With ice: herbs prominent, no pepper spice. Hint of oak still. Overall decent, would drink again, but might not buy outright. Think it would work well mixed.

Woody and herby with a hint of leather. Very nice drinker. This one goes to the front of my list.

A tasty rye. A little too cardboardy in the nose.

Not very smooth
Van Brunt Stillhouse American Whiskey
Justin,
Smooth caramel finish. This is the stuff that will get your friends who don't drink whiskey into it.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Brian,
A standout rye, with a long finish. Lingering camel, coffee chocolate notes makes this one special. Definitely a drink Rye.

Not great
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Craig,
For a 100% rye mashbill, this is really drinkable and smooth and full of herby flavor details of the sort you get in a big gin. I pick up some cinnamon all along, but that may be eccentric. At $45 a bottle I'd buy one. At $70+, I'll pass.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Lacey,
Did not like this one at all. Too flowery. Finish reminded me of oolong tea. Not what I’m looking for in a rye.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Shannon,
I enjoyed the sample from one of Flaviar's kits, but upon buying a whole bottle it tasted too buttery. I suspect this is small batch and the consistency isn't quite there yet. Still good, but there are better options for the price.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Grant,
I’m finding that I enjoy rye quite a bit. This one was easy to drink with a hint of sweetness.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Angela,
very medicinal
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Antti,
It is a good, intense, with a bold & oily birth; while an intense life leads to a long, oily & toasty death with bitter oakiness & a hint of sugar.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Lloyd,
I'm not much of a Rye fan, but this… simply, where had this rye been all my life and I'll be having a bottle of this in my personal stash.

Anne,
super smooth, easy taste, but great taste
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Shannon,
Lots of wood and floral notes. Perfect amount of spice. Maybe my new favorite rye.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Jonathan,
Very tasty
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Stefani,
Aroma of fresh tobacco is beautiful and inviting. The botanicals take it in a surprising direction. If you like interesting botanical gins, you will probably like this rye.

very medicinal
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Greg,
Not too bad. These rye whiskeys are growing on me. It was a little outside my wheelhouse but it's got flavor. I wouldn't hesitate to give it a try!
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
John,
A little sweet with some definite spice. The nose has elements of peppermint. Pretty good, but not my fave.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Jordan,
Strong young wood flavor. Not my cup of tea but definitely has some stand out flavors that others might love
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Jeffry,
Pretty good complex flavor profile. More Smokey and less sweet than most ryes. Probably a little expensive for what you are getting though
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Gregory,
Oaky
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Paul,
I dig it; lots of complexity with the herbal Smokey up front flavor, the oily mouthfeel and long Spicey finish. Funky.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Nino,
Very herbaceous. Too long of a finish. A bit oily on the tongue., even a touch of terpentine. Does not have the bite I seek in a rye.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Alex,
It smells like it has a strong oak taste but it tastes like it was aged in barrels of green wood. Not too bad but I wouldn't buy a bottle for myself.

James,
Not a really flavorful rye.

Austin,
Strong wood and smoke flavors
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Brita,
Spicy! Very tasty
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Amy,
I couldn’t sip this — tasted like wet leaves and bitterness. Perhaps interesting in a cocktail, but no comparison to the other selections in the tasting box.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Jesi,
A little more sting in the aroma than I am accustomed to. Rated a 7 for the taste tho.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Scott,
I really wish the nose matched up with the flavor more. The herbal nose/flavor gives way to a woody & what I am assuming is the "cardamom" spice note that doesn't suit my palate well.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Roger,
Damn this was the favorite out of the sampler, I will be adding this bottle to my collection. Smooth and what a great taste.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey

I really enjoyed this Rye
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
John,
Nice tasting Rye. I am confused as the Flavor spiral on the app is much different than the one sent with my sample

Shoji,
Decent
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Shannon,
If you want to taste what an oak tree in your mouth tastes like, than this is for you. Me not so much.
Van Brunt Stillhouse Rye Whiskey
Scott,
Coriander, Pine, Cardamom and Botanicals made for a very interesting spice feel.
