Jefferson's Cognac Cask Finish Straight Rye Whiskey

Only the second rye from Jefferson’s, this limited bottling marries the spice of American Rye with the refinement of Cognac. Double barreled for at least 9 months and up to 19 months, the Cognac finish adds complexity and depth onto the typically spicy rye whiskey character, with the typical dry finish of rye replaced with a thick mouth feel and honeyed orange zestiness. A true sipping rye whiskey.

The cognac is prominent on the nose with violets and dandelions atop oak, molasses, licorice, and mint. Those influences switch on a rich palate that's whiskey-forward upfront, offering rye spice, salted caramel, and brown sugar leading into grapes and blackcurrants. A lengthy, pleasing finish offers dark chocolate and vanilla, followed by a touch of heat wiped away with luscious raspberry syrup, leaving a close of tingling tannins and barrel char.
