Proof66 Notes

Masterson's 10yr Rye whiskey is made from 100% rye (straight rye is only required to have 50% and will often be blended with other grains) grown in the Pacific Northwest. The name comes from William "Bat" Masterson who, according to, began his career as an army scout in the lat 1800s and became friends of Wyat Earp and a sports writer in New York City--most notably a boxing enthusiast.

The 2013 Beverage Testing Institute claimed it had a "long, generous finish with layers of flavor."

The gold standard as far as rye is concerned. One of only a few ryes that could be enjoyed neat, likely due to the length of aging, which at 10 years is extremely rare. The bottling credits the region of rye, the northwest, for a more feminine tasting rye, and frankly who the hell even knows what that means? All I know is that this shit is nectar from the rye gods! A very mature, understated 100% rye that doesnt bite or burn, but simply lingers with pepper and burnt honey notes. Its so smooth that if you go 3:1 in a Manhattan you are going to have a second drink, then need a ride home. And it will be worth the cab fare.

Surprised I'm the first to review, it is good but didn't quite meet my expectations. Great balance and smooth yet zesty rye flavor. Where I was let down was with the tanic strange finish which came out of nowhere... Maybe I had a bad batch because it did seem very out of place and had nothing to do with the beginning and middle. Still, if you like rye you can't not try this
