This whiskey comes from the Dad’s Hat Distillery just north of Philadelphia in Bristol, Pennsylvania, and is a young Rye matured for at least six months. However, it doesn’t let youth get in the way.
The nose is grassy and aromatic with a touch of oak, allspice, dark chocolate, and toasted rye bread. The taste is smooth with good rye notes of cinnamon, clove, and clover honey, along with a touch of straw. The finish fades nicely with lingering spices. Young, but good. (June, 2014)
