I was blown away by this aged, potent rye, but until recently wasn't able to acquire any for the store. It is a strong and potent whskey at 54.5% alcohol, but the flavors are so compelling, I just had to try it again. Lock Stock & Barrel Straight Rhy is double distilled from a rare mash of 100 percent rye grain. Master distillers then select the "robust cut", then the unfiltered spirit is aged in new charred American oak barrels in cold weather. Intense, sure, but compelling. Distillery tasting notes: hot, buttered gingerbread, dried peach, toasted pecan, ripe honeydew and tobacco leaf. Sounds like dessert and a cigar.
