One of the many things I’ve learned on my trips to Kentucky is that a lot of the distillers actually drink rye over bourbon. I remember after an hour of tasting barrel after barrel of bourbon with Eddie Russell at Wild Turkey the barrel that got him more excited than any other was his private barrel of rye. It absolutely blew me away. Was it for sale? Hell no. Since that tasting 2 years ago I’ve been on a mission to find a single barrel offering of a Nicholas Reserve Rye.
On my last visit to Brooklyn to taste at Widow Jane, they turned me on to New York’s Distilling Company. They make a killer rye made with New York State organically grown rye. I was blown away with their Ragtime Rye. They do very few single barrels so this is one rare bird. They always bottle at 90 proof but I talked them into bottling The Nicholas Barrel Reserve at 100 proof so you can have it over ice or mixed in a cocktail.
This a super smooth rye with a long lasting burn. Hints of marzipan, hazelnut, cinnamon and nutmeg on the palate. The nose reveals tobacco, anise, and mocha. Aged 3 years in charred American Oak and bottled at 100 proof. Each bottle is numbered and there aren’t many to go around. The rest of the barrel will only be available at Bar N.
