UNITED STATES
$179. 00 Bottle

ABV: 50%
Secale Straight Rye takes its name from secale cereale, the Latin term for the rye grain. Using a mash of 50% raw and 50% malted rye produces a whiskey that balances the cereal qualities of malted grain with the assertive spice profile of its raw counterpart. 5% heirloom barley is also included. The final result is a distinctly nuanced style. Typical of small run bottlings, the flavour profile may vary from batch to batch.

Other reviews... [Batch #3 tasted] Good grief! The palate is absolutely coated in thick rye for an ungainly, rather unsettling experience. Make no mistake, this is a huge whiskey where both the oils and rye refuse to take prisoners... 50% Alc./Vol.
