O.K.I. 100% Rye Single Barrel No. 7 115.6 Proof - Selected by Seelbach's|
We have another great rye to release this week - and this one is 100% rye. Last year, O.K.I. released a few rye whiskey barrels in Kentucky to a huge success, and we were fortunate to have two single barrels with equal success just a few months ago.
MGP rye whiskey is regarded for its exceptional quality and versatility. Particularly the 95 percent rye mash bill. MGP has revitalized the rye whiskey style over the last decade. Despite using the same mash bill and barreling process, MGP rye whiskeys offer a wide range of flavor profiles. Barrels identical in product taste completely different as a finished product. This variability allows brands to create their own unique flavor profiles. This allows an array of different brands to showcase the beauty of MGP's iconic whiskey.
The 100% rye mash bill is the next iteration of the rye whiskey revolution. O.K.I. Rye single barrels are at the forefront of this category! 5 years old and barrel strength, if you are even a hint of rye whiskey fan you are going to love this barrel.
Burnt citrus peel, buttercream icing, and candied red fruits explode on the nose. Elegant pepper and clove spices fill the senses but always end with brûléed sweetness.
The palate is a lively, buttery dance of peppery baking spices and toasted rye bread. Tart cherry and red apple present like sour rope candy before a long, butterscotch sweetened finish with a whiff of leather.
