First offered in 2017, this has become an ongoing release from Limestone Branch Distillery Co. It's young whiskey (around two years old) sourced from MGP in Indiana and produced from a mash bill of 51% rye, 45% corn and 4% malted barley. Casks from Meier’s Winery which previously held cream sherry were employed for the finishing period which will vary from batch to batch.

Other reviews... The sherry cask finish asserts itself right up front, with orange oil, sweet figs, cloves, and cedar; aromas of grape candy, peonies, spearmint, and allspice appear as well. While this is unabashedly a rye, with flavors of cinnamon, black pepper, and oak, the sherry comes to the fore again in the guise of grape soda, sweet cherries, and chocolate. The finish is sweet and oak-driven, with good length. 87 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Susannah Skiver Barton (Spring 2019)
