Proof66 Notes

Cody Road is named for William "Buffalo Bill" Cody who was born in Iowa. The rye whiskey is made from 100% rye grain (making it a pure rye whiskey—many rye spirits are made with a blend of other grains) grown on a single farm in Fulton, IL.

Here at Proof66, we had the chance to do a formal tasting of Cody Road Rye and liked it very much.

This is a very high-quality rye whiskey. For the everyday guy, if you’re drinking Jack Daniel’s, you could easily move on to Cody Road and never look back. Life’s too short to drink something as boring and tarry as Jack. Entering the rye whiskey world, we think the cocktail snob would appreciate the heavy grain of the Cody Road and the challenge it poses in cocktails. The whiskey snob will definitely fall in love with the heavy-handed rye of the Cody Road but perhaps miss a bit of oak character. If they would put a little more age and proof on the spirit, it could be a truly spectacular whiskey that could stand up against the very elite editions in the industry. As it is, this should enter the must-try list for rye enthusiasts in the market.
