Pikesville Straight Rye Whiskey - Review



Straight Ry Whiskey

At Least 6 Years Old

Heaven Hill Distillery - Distilled & Bottled in Bardstown, Kentucky

110 Proof

Mash Bill: 51% Rye / 39% Corn / 10% Malted Barley

Retail Price: $50

Poured Neat in a Glencairn

Color: Amber

Nose: Caramel apples, allspice, nutmeg and oak

Palate: Vanilla, cherries (reminds me of a Cherry Vanilla Coke), some cinnamon and pepper spice.

Finish: Medium linger with a warm coating

Overall: Believe it or not, this is my first time diving into Pikesville. I've had it on my shelf for far too long and today was the day. Based on my fandom of Heaven Hill, I had no doubts this would be a solid pour. I wasn't expecting the flavors I picked up though. The heavy cherry influence is very welcomed and very much enjoyed. The finish is a perfect warm hug that sticks around for just the right amount of time.

Library Rating: 8.2 / 10
