Door number 8 of the Drinks by the Dram American Whiskey Advent Calendar is open and a sample of Ragtime Rye is revealed! This whiskey, bottled at 45,2%, comes from the New York Distilling Company’s and is made using a mashbill of 72% rye, 16% corn and 12% malted barley and after that matured for a minimum of three years in American oak casks.
On the nose I am getting notes of fennel, raspberry, honey, vanilla, redcurrant, whole grain pancakes, pepper notes, dark toasted bread, grilled carrots, caramelized onions and onion chutney. The palate has some different flavours of spices and fruits together with the flavour of warm bread that just came out of the oven. And do you know those big old fashioned liquorish/wine balls that you can get at the carnival? Those for sure also on this palate!
An interesting dram for sure with many kind of flavours in it, with a bit short finish, but filled with liquorish and vanilla sweet notes. Thanks #DrinksbytheDram for sharing this #WhiskeyAdvent !
