Rieger's whiskey was made from 1887 until Prohibition shut down operation in 1919, a familiar story. Brought back to life in the late 1990s, the distinctive "Kansas City style" whiskey adds a dash of oloroso sherry to its 90% corn, wheat and rye whiskies to create a unique style. Bottled at 46% alcohol (92 proof), this whicky offers a tremendous rich color and viscosity. The flavor is equally rich, and quite nice to sip. Bravo.
