Stats

Sagamore Spirit Double Oak

Straight Rye Whiskey

NAS

Sagamore Spirit - Baltimore, Maryland

Distilled in Indiana

96.6 Proof

Mash Bill: Undisclosed (At least 51% Rye)

Retail Price: $60


Poured Neat in a Glencairn


Color: Copper


Nose: Vanilla, Toffee, Caramel, Baking Spices, Brown Sugar and Cinnamon


Palate: Honey, Graham Crackers, Molasses, Almonds and Nutmeg


Finish: Oaky, Warm, Long-Lasting and Viscous


Overall: The extra oak finish creates all the fun here. The sweetness cuts off at the perfect time allowing the rye spices to kick in. I’m all about comparing what I taste to other things I’ve tasted. Palate association, if you will. Sagamore Double Oak is no exception. The best association I could make with this pour is: Almond Roca.


It’s no secret that I gravitate towards Double Oak, Toasted Barrels, Charred Oak, etc. The extra vanilla, caramel and brown sugars seem to shine through and stand tall.
