New Riff Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 100 Proof

Building upon America’s 1897 Bottled-in-Bond Act—already the highest quality standard for aged spirits in the world—New Riff Bourbon is Bottled In Bond Without Chill Filtration. Featuring a mash bill of non-GMO grains at 65% corn,30% rye, and 5% malted barley, it represents a new riff on Kentucky’s most hallowed whiskey traditions

New Riff 6 Year Old Malted Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky 100 Proof

This style of whiskey is made of 100% malted rye grain, which is quite rare, even in today’s craft distilling scene. Malted rye is rye grain that has undergone the process of malting. When you malt a grain you alter and, arguably, improve and refine its flavor. That’s exactly what’s happened here, as the typically spicy flavor of rye becomes polished, refined, and subtle.

New Riff Single Barrel Barrel Proof Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey

A single barrel Rye whiskey from New Riff distilling, matured for four years before being bottled in 2020 at barrel proof. The result is notes of clove, nutmeg, toasted rye bread, oak and peppery spice throughout the palate.

New Riff Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey 110 Proof

Aroma is warm and oaky, approaching an almost musty funk along with the sweetness… like an olde tyme candy shop that needs airing out; Palate gets more oak and spice, but walks along the same path more-or-less; Finish picks up an interesting soapiness that strangely doesn’t detract at all, but is light enough to work well.
