New Rye and a 10 Year Old Irish Whiskey

This week, there’s a 10 year old Irish whiskey from The Dubliner, and Limestone Branch is launching a new rye brand.

Minor Case Rye

Style: Straight rye whiskey
Proof: 45% ABV
Price: $50
Release: March 2017
Availability: Widely available

Need to know:

A new brand from Limestone Branch, this 2 year old rye whiskey is named after Minor Case Beam, the great-grandfather of Limestone Branch cofounders Steve and Paul Beam. It’s finished in a sherry barrel.

Whisky Advocate says:

Limestone Branch opened their distillery in 2011, but this rye whiskey isn’t made there. The label says it’s distilled in Indiana, so it’s safe to assume it’s made at MGP.

The Dubliner 10 year old Single Malt

Style: Single malt Irish whiskey
Proof: 43% ABV
Price: $50
Release: March 2017
Availability: More than 20 U.S. states

Need to know:

The Dubliner brand is launching its first age-statement whiskey, which is also its first single malt.

Whisky Advocate says:

The Dubliner Irish Whiskey is reviewed in our Spring 2017 Buying Guide with a score of 90. At $20, it gives great bang for your buck, and we can only hope the 10 year old single malt does the same.
