Jefferson's Cognac Cask Finish Straight Rye Whiskey

$72.50
Size
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.
