Sonoma County Distilling Co. Cherrywood Rye Whiskey (750ml)

Sonoma, California, UNITED STATES
$165.00 Bottle
  • ABV 47.8%

The Sonoma County Distilling Company was founded in 2010 in the heart of the County with a ''grain to glass' approach to production. Every aspect is handled in-house including the mashing and fermentation of grains, direct-fired copper alembic pot distillation, American oak barrel aging, bottling and labeling. It's a philosophy that resonates with many small Australian distillers. Perhaps not surprisingly, several tasters have found strong resemblances here to Belgrove's 100% Rye whiskies from Tasmania.

For this edition, the mash bill is made up of unmalted Canadian rye and wheat, complimented by a hint of Cherrywood-smoked barley from Wyoming. Expect notes of dried figs, toasted almonds, brandied cherries and new leather. Unfiltered and hand bottled, the producers describe it as " inventive whiskey meant for those who enjoy the flavours of a classic Manhattan cocktail."

Other reviews... [Batch 1 tasted] A 1 year old whiskey made from rye, wheat, and cherrywood-smoked malt. An interesting sweet/sour nose, with Montmorency cherry, sweet grain, bitter rye, and a slap of fresh leather jacket. Follows through in the mouth, but more integrated, a sweet cocktail of neat whiskey with only the slightest hint of “smoke.” The leather slips in at the finish and wraps things up neatly. A bit overly sweet, a bit simple, but good.

...Double distilled in pot stills.... Initially, I encounter mildly alluring scents of dried cherry/prune/black raisins that underscore a dry oakiness that’s almost roasted/toasted/charred; secondary whiffs encounter traces of seeds, grain kernel, old saddle leather, black peppercorn. Entry is fresh, acidic, dry to off-dry, raisiny, very cherrywood influenced; midpalate adds tasty flavors of sweetened cereal grain (Grapenuts especially), maple syrup, saltwater taffy, toasted marshmallow. Aftertaste is creamy, lush, bittersweet. Nice job with this one. Highly Recommended. 4 Stars.
