About Cherrywood Rye Whiskey:
Made with a base of rye grain, with complements of wheat and California Cherrywood-smoked Barley, this inventive spirit is meant for those who seek out the flavors of a classic Manhattan cocktail in a distilled spirit. Aged in new American oak barrels for no less than one year, the nose offers aromas of baked cherries, vanilla custard, butterscotch, hay, a whiff of tar, and sweet pipe tobacco. On the palate, dried figs, toasted almonds, brandied cherries, new leather and light smoke. A very generous and well-crafted whiskey, it finishes balanced and smooth.
