FEW Immortal Rye Whiskey. Image courtesy FEW Spirits.This is a unique Rye Whiskey from FEW Spirits, since it was reduced from barrel proof to bottling strength not with filtered water, but with tea. Specifically, the Eight Immortals tea from The Tea Spot in Denver. The result is a whiskey with an aromatic and warm nose that has herbal touches along with baking spices dark chocolate, and a hint of peaches. The taste has herbal notes mixed with intense rye spices, while hints of honey and tree fruits come out as the spices fade. The finish is long with a nice balance of herbal notes, tree fruits, spices, and oak. Very nice. (October, 2020)
