Check Point Rye Whiskey
NAS (No Age Statement)
Distilled and Bottled by Leatherwood Distillery
Pleasant View, Tennessee
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.
