Barrell Seagrass / Rye Whiskey Finished in Rum, Madeira & Apricot Brandy Barrels
118.22 proof / usa / 750 ml
Seagrass highlights the grassy oceanside notes we love in rye and the opulence and spice of finishing barrels. It is a blend of American and Canadian rye whiskeys, with each ingredient meticulously sourced and finished separately in Martinique Rhum, Madeira & apricot brandy barrels. The candy and nut notes provided by the Madeira and Apricot Brandy barrels contrast nicely with the rye spice, and marry well with the subtle stone fruit notes that the rye provides, bringing them more to the forefront. There’s a touch of residual sugar on the palate, but the high proof here dries it out completely, and keeps it from ever seeming cloying.
