Coalition Kentucky Straight Rye Pauillac Barriques - Review


Coalition Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

Finished in Pauillac Barrels

Aged 5 Years (Finished for up to 9 Months)

Distilled, Aged & Bottled by Kentucky Artisan Distillery

Crestwood, Kentucky

92.6 Proof

Mash Bill: 100% Rye (10% Malted Rye)

Poured Neat in a Glencairn

Color: Dark Honey / Amber

Nose: Black and White Pepper, Slight Anise, Dark Cherry and Ripe Plum

Palate: BOLD! Cherry, Plum, Roasted Almonds and a beautiful Pepper Spice

Overall: This is much more than just a fancy bottle. And I'll tell you, the bottle really does stand out. From the first whiff, I knew this was going to be something I really enjoyed. My love for wine and whiskey come full circle with this particular offering. I also think this is the perfect time of year to try this for the first time. A warming sensation and the almost immediate response to lick your lips has me reaching for another sip. I'm looking forward to finding other Coalition Barrel Finishes to try.

I'd like to thank the folks at Coalition for giving me the opportunity to try this and provide my unbiased feedback.
