Dad's Hat Pennsylvania Straight Rye, 47.5%

Price: $60 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Very aromatic and pretty, with floral lilac, violet, and rosewater notes that follow through on the palate like a grandmother's kiss. The perfumed soap and sachet qualities are underscored by oaky contributions of vanilla and crème brûlée. Perhaps not for everyone, but this shows another thoroughly enjoyable side of rye whiskey.
