Proof66 Notes

McKenzie Rye Whiskey is named for the owners of the Finger Lakes Distilling Company and made from New York grown grain. The aging is done in quarter-casks--smaller than ordinary barrels that promote contact between wood and spirit and accelerate aging--and finished in local sherry barrels (the surrounding region being full of wineries).

Nicely weighty body and mouth feel generating warmth wherever it touches. Dried dark fruits (think fruitcake but drier) dried orange peel, hints of cherry, vanilla, oak pepper, and cinnamon. The sherry barrels have also added some unique components, something reminiscent of amarone grappa or pisco quebranta grapes, that give a lovely grapey roundness in taste and aromatics to the overall taste that is singularly unique to this rye. Lingering spicy, slightly sweet finish with a notable dryness on the tongue and pleasant heat to it - nothing like the old style gargling broken glass feel we remember from some old style ryes.
