Chicken Cock Kentucky Straight Rye, 45%

Price: $70 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

A bright, floral, citrusy rye that is almost grassy, offering a lot of primary grain notes of toasty breakfast cereal, fresh rye bread, and even some caraway. The floral sachet and potpourri notes are distinctively young rye, as are the vivid sizzling spices. Certainly a rye lover's rye, as clove-studded orange sails into drying minerality and cracked pepper on the finish.
