Cask & Crew Double Oaked Straight Rye, 48%

Price: $50 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: David Fleming

From Rochester, New York-based Cask & Crew, this was distilled in Canada, matured 4 years in new charred oak, then finished in another new charred oak barrel. Spice, pistachio, and a note of barrel char on the nose, and a nutty, creamy palate with notes of blueberry pie, chocolate, cooked plums, and light spice. The finish offers more spice, coffee cake, and almond nuttiness. The profile is young, but full of good flavors.
