Whiskey with a mash bill of at least 51% rye

The Whiskey Jug
Barrell have become masters of the blend and they’re pumping out one great release after another with no signs of slowing down or moving backward in quality. This Barrel Rye Batch 003 is a fantastic global blend and makes me even more excited for what’s to come.

Barrell Rye Batch 003 Review - The Whiskey Jug

Barrell Rye Batch 003 Review: (4 Years, 58.35% ABV, $90) A masterful blend of rye from three countries displaying the beauty and power of rye.

That said, the floral notes are not overwhelming and after a bit of sipping they become just another facet of the whiskey and end up adding to its overall character. Water doesn’t change the Woodinville Cask Strength Rye Whiskey too much at first, but too much water and that woody craft note that was hanging out in the back starts moving forward. So you might want to be a bit restrained with those droppers. Bourbon Whiskey, Whisky, Flower Places, Sweet And Spicy, Natural Flavors, Distillery, Moving Forward, Woody, Bourbon

Woodinville Cask Strength Rye Whiskey - The Whiskey Jug

Woodinville Cask Strength Rye Whiskey Review: (5 Years, 61.67% ABV, $70) Tad floral and unique in its delivery, it keeps the craft notes low.

But if you like the taste and can afford the Kentucky Owl Rye 10 Years, I hope you enjoy every last drop of it because at the end of the day it’s good whiskey and that’s what I’m here to talk about as often as possible: good whiskey.

Kentucky Owl Rye 10 Years Review - The Whiskey Jug

Kentucky Owl Rye 10 Years Review: (10 Years, 57% ABV, $200) An aromatic and tasty whiskey with a lot to offer the rye connoisseur looking to splurge.

This is the kind of rye I just love because it’s fun, it’s interesting and with this SiB you get to explore a singular aspect of what goes into their standard New Riff Rye for a measly $5 more. Hands down, this is one of my most recommended ryes these days, the New Riff Single Barrel Rye is just plain good stuff!

New Riff Single Barrel Rye Review - The Whiskey Jug

New Riff Single Barrel Rye Review: (4 Years, 56.7% ABV, $50) When it comes to flavor-for-value it’s hard to outdo what New Riff is creating.

I love their relentlessly innovative approaches to whiskey and I’m even more excited for the day all their whiskey matures and replaces those sharp woody craft notes, like I’m getting in this A.D. Laws Secale Rye Whiskey, with the warm oaky notes we know and love in American whiskey. It’ll happen, it just takes time, and I’ll be here patiently waiting.

A.D. Laws Secale Rye Whiskey Review - The Whiskey Jug

A.D. Laws Secale Rye Whiskey Review: (2 Years, 47.5% ABV, $55) Another young craft with that raw woody note hanging heavy which is a travesty.

I like what Wilderness Trail is doing with their sweet mash approach, their multiple yeast strain approaches and their test-and-learn approach. These folks are the nerdy embodiment of what craft whiskey could and should be. I think the only ones nerdier than them are the mad scientists over at Corsair.

Wilderness Trail Rye Whiskey - The Whiskey Jug

Wilderness Trail Rye Whiskey Review: (4 Years, 55% ABV, $60) There is no reason craft whiskey has to taste bad and Wilderness Trail is proof.

Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select Rye Whiskey Review - The Whiskey Jug

Woodford Reserve Distiller's Select Rye Whiskey Review: Bottled at 45.2%, aged 4+ years and priced around $40. Soft, light, sweet, but not gutless.

I do not like the Leopold Bros. Maryland Style Rye Whiskey… and neither did anyone at our SCWC 20 blind ryes event. It came in dead last, just a mere 11 points above the minimum possible with the second to last a full 12 points above it. It might be good in 6-8 more years, only time will tell, but I definitely won’t be picking up any of their whiskeys until they hit that range. However, for cocktails, their liqueurs, gins and absinthe do sound interesting… Malted Barley, Dried Apples, Rye Whiskey, Liqueurs, Distillery, Blind, Maryland, Whiskey Bottle, Vodka

Leopold Bros. Maryland Style Rye Whiskey Review - The Whiskey Jug

Leopold Bros. Maryland Style Rye Whiskey Review: (2 Years, 43% ABV, $47) This is just not a tasty rye whiskey. Pure raw craft profile.

A smoothly executed dram that screams rye without being dill-heavy and keeps me coming back for more. This Wild Turkey Rare Breed Rye is a fantastic new addition to the WT lineup and can proudly sit side-by-side with the always fantastic Rare Breed Bourbon. This is the kind of rye whiskey I want on my shelf at all times and is giving the Pikesville Rye a run for its money for my favorite off-the-shelf rye.

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Rye Review - The Whiskey Jug

Wild Turkey Rare Breed Rye Review: (56.1% ABV, 4+ Years, $60) This is a truly delightful and bold rye. I’m all about what’s going on in this glass.

Elijah Craig Rye Whiskey is a nice expression of the Heaven Hill rye mash. It pulls out more of that cereal corn sweetness found in their bourbons that neither the Rittenhouse Bonded nor the Pikesville Rye really put on display – yet it retains a good spiciness. A worthy addition to the Elijah Craig line… now we just need the ECBPR! Rye Grain, Best Bourbons, Roasted Apples, Malted Barley, Rye Whiskey, Distillery, Whiskey Bottle, Cereal, Heaven

Elijah Craig Rye Whiskey Review - The Whiskey Jug

Elijah Craig Rye Whiskey Review: Bottled at 47%, aged 4+ years and priced around $40. A tasty and aromatic rye with a lot to offer for all rye lovers.

Given the 95/5 mash they’re running with it’s a bit strange how sweet this Rabbithole Boxergrail Rye Whiskey is with candy, dessert, fruit and cereal grain sweet notes coming and going at irregular intervals that create a craving for the spicy moments. On the whole I’m happy with what’s going on in my glass and I’m excited to see what it will do in some cocktails.

I’m constantly amazed at their ability to get so much maturity and depth, in such a short amount of time, while avoiding that young-raw-woody profile that plagues so many in the craft whiskey world. Corsair Dark Rye is among the best rye whiskeys in the craft category and definitely the best who leverage small barrels. They have those down to a delicious science!

Corsair Dark Rye Review - The Whiskey Jug

Corsair Dark Rye Review: Bottled at 42.5%, aged 8 months and priced around $45. So much depth and maturity at such a young age, insane how they do it.
