A real estate Rye Whiskey with bold power and plums on the middle palate.

The Willett Family has a long Whiskey-making history stretching back into the 1700s. The family has worked for others and operated their own distillery off-and-on for well over two-hundred years. Prior to 2012 they were hand-selecting casks from the Kentucky Bourbon Distillers inventory for their releases. Since then, Willett Whiskeys are made from new-make spirit coming from their newly renovated distillery — opened in 2012 — and appropriately called the Willet Distilling Company. They deliver no fewer than a dozen varieties.

The name is long enough to tell you just about everything you need to know about this Whiskey — Willett Family Estate 4 Year Old Small Batch Rye. Obviously, it’s a four-year-old Rye Whiskey and bottled at a nearly cask strength. And “small batch” only begins to tell the tale. But the main thing to remember is that it means that the flavor profile and proof-strength vary from batch to batch. Go with the  Willet and be inspired. Every single time and with every single sip you take!

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Flamed bronze. 

Nose / Aroma / Smell
High alcohol content and spiciness of the Rye surprise the nose with power before toasted oak and toffee appear.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
Taken neat, it’s a powerful dram. Flavors mingle with frolic stone fruits, vanilla, cherry and baking spices that come the surface.

Finish
It has a solid and complex finish normally only found in older spirits.

Ben
Ben,
Great when you want something strong that tastes strong, but good.
 
Richard
Richard,
It’s like a classic rye dialed up to 11. The nose and first taste are exactly as you’d expect (sweet caramel, baking spices) but after a few seconds the peppery flavors pop. I love a strong whiskey but this is almost too much. If pop rocks were made into a rye, this would be the bottle. It’s a challenging drink, if you’re into that.

Delicious. Smooth!
 
Michael
Michael,
Nose is floral and spicy, with a bold taste of toffee and nice toasted oak. The oak lingers nicely on the finish. I can't believe this is 126 proof.
 
Ian
Ian,
If you like other Ryes you'll like this better. Complex, ridiculously smooth for its proof, and from everything I've read a huge improvement over the younger 3 year expression. Order a dozen!
 
Will
Will,
Hands down the best rye I've had. Tasted this blind, against others, on multiple occasions and it always comes out on top. Depends on the batch you get, but at 110 proof + it drinks like a 90. The Spice is there but not over powering, nice long finish, rich and complex!
 
Chip
Chip,
Fantastic. Bigger than Whistlepig taste, body, aroma profile and finish...almost 1/2 the price

Mark,
The rye of my dreams. Spicy, rich, long finish.

Joseph,
One of my favorites, 126 proof that goes down smoother than most 80 proofs that I have. the flavor is exceptional.
