Tasting Notes: The nose is warm baking spice. Lots of ginger, brown sugar, and cinnamon. The taste is orange zest and Lipton green tea. The whiskey coats the palate nicely. It has a little creaminess and viscosity with each sip. The finish really lingers on the iced gingerbread cookie and toasted coconut notes. There's something about malted rye that adds great mouthfeel and finish.
Ranger Creek .44 Texas Rye Whiskey is made from 100% malted rye and matured in our used .36 Texas Straight Bourbon barrels. The process highlights the complexity of the rye grain, resulting in a spirit-forward whiskey. It pours a rich gold with a nose of cinnamon, mint and toffee. At 94 proof, the taste is strong but mellow with notes of clove and spice. The taste ultimately gives way to a clean, warming finish with lingering notes of fresh bread. True and authentic to our brand, .44 Texas Rye is a premium whiskey made from grain to glass in our hometown of San Antonio, Texas.
