Old Overholt Straight Rye, 40%

Price: $17 Issue: Spring 2019 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

A veteran rye whiskey brand that flaunts the floral quality of younger ryes with its summer flowers, bright citrus, and lemon oil notes. A well-polished palate, with warm porridge, and grain notes that smack of peanut butter on warm toast. Nice character and balance, if a touch anemic at this proof.
