If you think this 7+ year old whiskey has a smoother finish than most
whiskies you’ve tried, you’re not just imagining things.  J. Rieger
revived an older style of whiskey making that uses a little bit of
sherry - a 15-year Oloroso at that - as part of its dilution,
resurrecting a style they were approved to call “Kansas City Whiskey”,
and the process is no gimmick. More exotic barrel finishes are
becoming more popular across the board in the ever-growing American
whiskey field, and this whiskey takes it one step further, imparting a
little bit more flavor, naturally. The resultant whiskey is subtly
fruitier and nuttier, without actually coming across as sweet, since
the extra time in barrel provides enough tannins to finish perfectly
dry. Just as Pat Mahomes stretches the bounds of what we thought a
quarterback could do, J. Rieger does the same thing in Kansas City for
whiskey.
