16 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey 750ml
The origins of rye whiskey in the United States date back to colonial America, when early European settlers brought with them the tradition of distilling excess grains from their farms into whiskey. For over a century, the production of rye whiskey centered around Pennsylvania and Maryland, where large numbers of Scottish and Irish immigrants had settled. The popularity of rye whiskey grew steadily among the colonists, and when the British blockade of American ports during the American Revolutionary War prevented the importation of rum, rye whiskey became America's drink of choice. Inspired by America’s rich rye heritage, the late great Robert Cooper, a third-generation distiller, crafted Lock Stock and Barrel 16 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey using some stock he held back from Lock Stock’s 2012 release of their 12 year old rye. One of the few who single-handedly transformed the cocktail world when he released St. Germain in 2007, Cooper passed away unexpectedly in 2016 at the age of just 39, leaving this release bittersweet. Lock Stock & Barrel Limited Release 16 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey is distilled from a rare 100% rye mash. The rye is grown in the Pacific Northwest, where only grains that exhibit the perfect combination of weight, plumpness and rich, earthy fragrance are harvested. After the grains have been milled and mashed, they are fermented before being double distilled through a copper pot still. Following distillation, the rye is aged in cold weather for sixteen years in new charred American oak casks before being bottled unfiltered at 107 proof. “We tasted many barrels in our extensive collection of aged, straight rye whiskey and culled the finest that have matured to 16 years old,” said Cooper in a statement before his death. “Lock Stock & Barrel 16 is that rare but true combination of the finest whiskey and the best techniques. Winning the highest honors at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition further validates the integrity of what we put into every bottle.” The flavors of are Lock Stock & Barrel 16 Year are somewhat more intense and concentrated than the 13-year-old’s, but with less of an oaky aroma than the age might suggest. Lock Stock & Barrel is a tightly woven fabric of aromatics including black pepper, chocolate, vanilla, and spice cake. The fruit-forward palate balances leather, oak, pinewood and needles with wild cherries, stewed blackberry, dried pear and sassafras. The fruitiness carries through the palate to the finish, where it is joined by warm notes of molasses, anise, and pepper. It blooms beautifully with a half-teaspoon of water added, though it remains flavorful and intense, yet perfectly balanced when neat.

Amazing sweet air pocket gum-like and peppery flavor at the to begin that progresses to something more like a WhistlePig profile. You will loathe this or love this... I love it. On the off chance that you can attempt before you purchase.

Because of Richard I got the chance to test this one final night. This is very un-Rye like. Striking and oaky. Heating flavors laying on newly cut oak. Every little thing about it is exceptional. I felt as though I truly required water to extricate it up a piece. After water it improves to a more rye character with the nutmeg licorice and mint. Extraordinary fall climate Measure. Much obliged Richard!

I was given an example of this from a neighborhood companion who has abandoned drinking spirits. Im not certain if this stuff is uncommon costly or elusive. Im not even sure what a container costs. I simply know its a multi year old 100% Canadian rye bourbon. Its packaged at 53.5% and is dim copper in the tasting glass. Substantial beads bend the whole edge and it makes bunches of legs. The nose it ordinary rye flavor pepper a little pine and dill with a fundamental vanilla and oak note. The sense of taste is hot and peppery preparing flavors sweet cola with a pleasant trace of air pocket gum on the last part. To be 100% rye its not overwhelming by any stretch of the imagination even at 54%. I think thats what I like the most about it. Im not a major rye individual so when I get one that appears to be truly very much limited I have an inclination that I can appreciate it more. That was the situation here. The completion was medium length slick with some waiting oak notes. By and large its simple drinking with a lighter than anticipated mouthcoat and feel. Im happy I had the option to check out this one as I expect to extend my American whiskey and rye portfolio. Because of my pal @RyanS1865 for this one. 4 stars. Good health.

Tasting Notes
Nose
The nose weaves between rye spice and black pepper, and brown sugar and vanilla. Dry oak and pine - both wood and needles.
Taste
Enter on the palate, along with a hefty dose of spice, medicinal notes, and leather. There's an underlying rich sweetness too, as well as baking spices such as cloves and nutmeg to match the rye spice.
Finish
The finish bursts open, briefly hot but very long lasting, with molasses, mint, licorice, oak, more medicinal notes, and pepper.
