Review #711 | /r/Bourbon Review #401 – New Richmond Rye, Limited Edition Barrel #74
The Schtick: THis is a new, Limited Edition release of cask strength rye from New Richmond distillery. This is supposedly a very small release of their 55 month old rye from barrel #74, bottled at cask strength.
Distiller: New RIchmond
Bottler: New Richmond
ABV: 60.115% ABV
Age: 55 Months
Source: Bottle, Split, Purchased
Nose: Molasses, grassy and floral. Honey and clove. Faint, wet, straw.
Taste: Wet straw, a bit hot, molasses, clove, peppercorns, allspice and toffee.
Finish: Long, growing heat, rye and clove spice, honey, toffee and nice floral notes.
Overall: This is a good showing from them, although there are still signs it’s a bit young. Promising, and I’m looking forward to their older releases when they come around.
Thanks for reading!
