2021 Single Cask #8: Starlight Indiana Straight Rye Whiskey
Although Starlight is just across the Ohio River from Kentucky and only about 20 miles
from Louisville, the climate, conditions, and culture of southern Indiana are quite distinct
from their better-known counterparts just to the south. Located at one of the highest
points in Southern Indiana, the distillery sees harsher weather conditions and bigger daily
temperature swings than the surrounding area, contributing to the development of flavor
in the barrel.
This straight rye whiskey was aged for 4 years in a 53-gallon barrel. Made with 85% locally grown rye and 15% malted barley, it has a robust rye spice, with notes of cardamom, molasses, burnt caramel, and lemon zest. This is Indiana whiskey at its finest.
