Tasting Notes

Another independent bottling of LDI rye (a la Bulleit, Templeton, Redemption, etc) except that this one offers an outstanding price. Very much in the style of Bulleit, light and peppery with soft vanilla notes. Quite drinkable on its own but nice for mixing as well. A good overall value.

    Surprisingly sweet and round, with lemon, mandarin peel, and pine contrasting toasted almond, marshmallow, and vanilla, there is a solid depth of flavor here for a two year old rye. That being said, if you plan to make a Manhattan or some similar creation, go with a lighter sweet vermouth and be chary with it. I find this works best for my palate in cocktails with just a few small additions. As an aside, it is refreshing to see that the bottle's legend freely admits to the whiskey being from sourced barrels, while the label's own distillates are coming of age.

    Bought upon a recommendation, this rye surprised me. It's one of only two ryes that I've ever tried that I like to drink neat. This is my standard whiskey for Sazeracs or Manhattans.
