Whisky lovers can probably name at least a few varieties of barley commonly used to make single malts, but rye? Rye doesn’t get the same respect for its diversity, even though it’s been around for hundreds of years. Mike Swanson of Minnesota’s Far North Spirits has led a team of researchers looking into the flavors different strains of rye have when they’re distilled into whisky. That study has just been released, and he’ll discuss the findings with us on WhiskyCast In-Depth. We’ll also compare some of the whiskies from that study, cover the week’s whisky news, and much more!
