Proof66 Notes

Dark Horse whisky is not a blended whisky but rather made from 100% rye grain--a style of whiskey more often associated with American whiskey but often used in Canadian blends. It was first launched in 2012 as an entry into the premium whisky market. It's a blend of 6yr and 12 yr aged rye whiskey.

Alberta Distillers was founded recently in 1946 by Max Bell and Frank McMahon to take advantage of Canadian grain production and has become well-known for rye whiskies in particular. They have made their reputation in rye and now deem themselves the largest buyer of rye grain in Canada mostly sourced from Canadian provinces. The brand is owned by Beam, Inc.

Dark Horse is a different rye, it is a full body rye with a great finish. Is it a rye I would sip, yes. Is this a high quality rye that works well with all mixs and has a great finish that makes it great with ice and a splash of water.
