Il Whiskey Rye è un whiskey americano di segale. Per legge deve essere fatto con una miscela che contenga almeno il 51% di segale. Questo Rye è uno "straight rye whiskey" con ben il 95% di segale! Tenete presente che gli altri whiskey americani, detti "bourbon", usano il mais e non la segale. Questa è la sostanziale differenza. Il bourbon risulterà più dolce e meno secco. Il Rye è quindi più secco ma anche più speziato. Il whiskey americano è nato alla fine del XVIII secolo in Pennsylvania ed era di segale. Con il proibizionismo degli anni '20 dello scorso secolo, gli americani si abituarono a bere la qualunque cosa soprattutto più dolce, e il whiskey lo prendevano di contrabbando dal Canada dove veniva fatto con il mais. Per questo alla fine del proibizionismo il whiskey di mais prese il sopravvento su quello di segale, anche per i cocktail. Ma chi oggi impara a bere whiskey di segale non torna più a quello di mais. Ultima info: questo Rye è originario dell'Indiana e viene messo 6 anni in botti nuove di quercia bianca americana prima di essere imbottigliato.
First of all, rye whiskey is a beast of it's own, and although I like rye, it's not my go to whiskey. This one is like a decent bourbon with lots of spice, not the best rye whiskey, but it gets 5 stars because of the price. £25 a bottle is excellent for this, but once again, don't expect it to be on the same level as a scotch sipper, entirely different flavour profile.
On the nose, the alcohol smells like some kind of paint solvent that I actually like and reminds of painting models. Some of the spice confess through on the nose too and substantial sweetness.
On the palette you get a woody liquorice flavour followed by a strong and growing spice, but the more you drink the more the flavour moves towards a very woody bourbon.
An excellent value rye whiskey. This rye is 4 years old , sourced from MGP in Indiana and bottled by Tom Bulleit. It's probably more of a mixer than a sipper but it's still very good indeed. I've had better rye's but not at this price point. A good tip if you want to taste it at it's best is to drink it down to the shoulders and then put it away for at least 6 months. All rye whiskey's oxygenate really well and the longer you leave them the better they get.
I paid double and three times the amount for some bourbons but this stuff is better than them all. I love this stuff. The scent, the taste, the after taste. Beautiful and cheap. I bought This and a pricey talisker at the same time and this is my favourite. But I'm not a fancy whisky drinker. I'm poor, uncultured and payed min wage but I really liked it. Othe people with finer pallets may not or enjoy it. But for me it was awesome. And 40 quid cheaper than what i nornally buy. This will be a regular on my payday shopping list
This is my absolute favourite bourbon. I first tasted it when I was in Texas and now am lucky we have it stocked in the supermarkets in England. It was pretty much the same price buying it on amazon so can’t complain. The bottle is so pretty and I love surprising my guests with it as it’s so different to what they have tasted before. This really will blow you away and it has such a smooth Taste.
Superb Rye whiskey, if you like Rye whiskey. If you don't like the sweet, spicey tang then don't bother because this is what this is all about. This stuff gets a 96 in the whisky bible. That's 1.5 marks away from the "liquid gold" section which doubles or trebles a bottle's price. Superb "bang for buck" imo.
This is super bourbon...a lovely balance of spice and sweet coming from the high rye content. I picked this up for £20 on prime day and felt like I robbed the seller. I'm not much of a bourbon drinker having been put off by some of the bigger labels like Jim Beam and Jack Daniel's, this is far superior and for the price most definitely worthy of a place in any whiskey cabinet!
If you want an introduction to Rye Bourbon Whiskey this is a great start. A very smooth taste with no unnecessary sweetness. A hint of pepper but more character than the plain Bulleit Bourbon. I like good quality single malt Scotch whisky, but this Rye is a pleasant American holiday. My bottle of Bulleit never lasts long particularly if friends visit the house. It's not the cheapest brand, but you definitely get what you pay for in this case.
Bought when on offer, but I would definitely consider buying it at full price. It is quite smooth without too much burn and a nice alternative to scotch or bourbon. Having not had much rye I am far from an expert, but when I have whiskey drinking friends round they seem to like it and it's also something that not many people have had!
