Reservoir Rye Whiskey, 50%

Price: $100 Issue: Summer 2017 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

There is a rich and robust distillate lurking under all that oak, with chewy maple candies, chocolate-covered cherries, and rhum agricole intensity. The astringent oak does no favors for the heat of this 100-proof whiskey, but with its lingering dark chocolate and char it's still a bold and tasty rye.
