The Details

Leatherwood

Check Point Rye Whiskey

NAS (No Age Statement)

Distilled and Bottled by Leatherwood Distillery

Pleasant View, Tennessee

80 Proof

Mashbill: Undisclosed

Price: $40


Poured Neat in a Glencairn


Appearance: Light Gold


Nose: Grain forward, Sweet Bread


Palate: Earthy, White Pepper, Sweet Spice


Finish: Short and subtle linger with a touch of white pepper.


Overall: There really isn't a lot going on with this release but I certainly appreciate the people behind this brand. I know bigger things are on the horizon. This Rye can be viewed as a versatile whiskey, meaning it would hold up quite well mixed either in a cocktail or with a few cubes. A sweet and youthful Rye with a lot of potential if rested longer.
