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 a 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!
Appearance / Color
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.
It has a solid and complex finish normally only found in older spirits.
