Straight Ry Whiskey
At Least 6 Years Old
Heaven Hill Distillery - Distilled & Bottled in Bardstown, Kentucky
Mash Bill: 51% Rye / 39% Corn / 10% Malted Barley
Retail Price: $50
Poured Neat in a Glencairn
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.
