Bear witness to the revival of rye. Born of the hearty grain, this whiskey's generous rye content is married with the sweetness of corn for a genteel interpretation of the venerable spirit. Aged in air-dried oak barrels, its spicy character transcends mere resurgence. This is the renaissance of rye. FEW Rye Whiskey.
Whiskey Advocate Craft Whiskey of the Year 2013
Few Spirits Rye is clearly in the top tier of current craft whiskeys.
Although itís young, the whiskey is well-made and clean in character, not funky and flawed, which still counts for a lot these days. As I said in my review, 'Straightforward rye crisps out of the glass in no-nonsense style; dry grain, sweet grass, and light but insistent anise almost wholly drown out the barrel character.' Itís backed up on the palate, where youíll get more rye, some tarragon and dry mint spice, and then some oak in the warming finish.
That light barrel character is hardly surprising in a young rye, and weíre not going to see much but young whiskey out of craft distillers for a while yet. So high marks to Few Spirits for making a very good young rye, one Iíve been using as a benchmark ever since I tasted it." ó Lew Bryson, Whiskey Advocate
