New Riff Distilling - Breaking Bourbon Private Barrel
Breaking Bourbon Tasting Notes:
Light and inviting, the nose consists of rye grain, oak, and a dash overlaying confectioners sugar. A lovely burst of sweet flavors on the palate. Sweet vanilla is mixed with rye spice, summer fruits, light vanilla, and a dash of white pepper. The finish is peppery mingling with hints of rye, oak, leather, and a dash of vanilla. A lingering heat holds on for a while. This would pair well with a nice cigar on a late summer night.
About New Riff Distilling
New Riff Distilling’s core Bourbon expression is a genuinely high-rye, full-bodied whiskey offering savory, spicy character, bottled at Barrel Proof without Chill Filtration. Featuring a mash bill of non-GMO grains at 65% corn, 30% rye, and 5% malted barley, it represents a new riff on Kentucky’s most hallowed whiskey traditions. Aged four years in 53-gallon toasted and charred new oak barrels, there are no shortcuts taken in our production. All New Riff whiskeys are made with the full sour mash Kentucky Regimen; all carry an age statement and are always bottled without chill filtration.
At New Riff, single barrel expressions are a way of life. As former Kentucky liquor retailers, we are intimately familiar with some of Kentucky’s most famed private barrel Bourbon selections ever, and we bring that experience to New Riff. A New Riff Private Barrel selection, whether for trade or private clients, offers an unparalleled experience, replete with tasting notes and an immersive process in our warehouse. Each New Riff single barrel has been tasted and approved by our production panel. Our retail and on-premise partners then select each of their private barrels themselves. In the end, you can taste a New Riff Single Barrel knowing it was fully vetted and thoroughly tasted and approved.
