Taconic Distillery Founder's Rye

40.00

As a young rye, one might expect a particular smoothness to this 90 proof rye. It doesn’t disappoint. An undercurrent of woodiness and spice gets under the tongue and tends to command the flavor, but it’s the rye’s mild sweetness, like summer fruit just before full ripeness, that glides it along. The finish is clean and even smoother, as mild hints of bananas and watermelon sour balls linger into a mild, mellow finish. This is a fine sipping rye.

Aged a minimum of two years in New oak, char 3, Coopers Select, 53-gallon Independent Stave Company barrels.

Taconic water is brought to the surface through a rich deposit of Dolostone. Similar to limestone, Dolostone is rich in calcium carbonate and magnesium. These minerals help to impart another layer of rich butteriness found in our spirits.
