The 2020 Presidential Dram 8 Year Old Rye Whiskey. Image courtesy Proof and Wood Ventures.Every four years, Proof and Wood Ventures releases The Presidential Dram to coincide with the U.S. Presidential election. This “two-term” 8-year-old Rye was distilled at MGP in Indiana and is bottled at barrel proof. The nose has notes of baking spices, charred oak, honey, and brown sugar. The taste starts off sweet with touches of honey and brown sugar, followed by a burst of clove and cinnamon complemented nicely by touches of dried fruits in the background. The finish is long and well-balanced with good spices and a nice oaky character. (January, 2021)
