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

Barrel: #74

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!
