Mic Drop Rye Batch L20-01. Image courtesy PM Spirits.This 4-year-old Rye was distilled at Kentucky’s Wilderness Trail Distillery using sweet mash fermentation with a mashbill of 56% rye, 33% corn, and 11% malted barley. The nose has good notes of baking spices along with a touch of oak, toasted caramel, cocoa beans, black cherries, and molasses. The taste is very spicy with cinnamon bark, allspice, and clove, while a hint of maple syrup comes out as the spices start to fade along with black cherries, pipe tobacco, and oak. The finish is long with lingering spices and hints of maple syrup, anise, and oak. Excellent!  (December, 2020)
