The newest addition to the Jefferson's line, Jefferson's Rye is made with 10 year old North American Straight Rye Whiskey. It offers a fantastic combination of age, purity and strength. Jefferson's Rye features a full body with classic caramel and vanilla flavors and a mid-palate spiciness that is slightly tempered by notes of dark chocolate.
Jefferson’s Straight Rye Whiskey is the latest addition to the Jefferson’s Presidential Collection. Bottled at 94 proof, this 10-year-old whiskey offers a perfect combination of age, purity and strength. Distilled from 100% North American rye, it is rich, spicy and exceptionally smooth. A true classic.
Medium amber color; flawless purity. Bright compelling, fruity/bakery aromas of baked banana bread, baked pears and apple cobbler make for delightful early-on sniffing; further air contact time of seven minutes encourages the ripe fruit aspect to deepen as gentle spice notes, especially pepper and allspice,
round out an exceptional bouquet experience. Entry is moderately oily, delicately spiced and even a touch honeyed; midpalate features the spice element in spades, making for zesty, tangy sipping. Aftertaste focuses squarely on the fruit component again along with the last minute hit of rye bread. Lots going on here…all of it good.
