A 2-year-old rye whisky from New York Distilling Company, bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company.
This is Batch 2 from the distillery, bottled at 50% with 481 bottles in the run.
Finnished in an applejack cask, hence the "big apple" on the label.
A whiskey that is very spicy on the nose with an assortment of cloves, pepepr and ginger, before a fresh and creamy palate leads into a spicy finish. A youthful, vibrant whisky with heaps of character.
"The earliest distilleries in Brooklyn date back to the 1700’s but it wasn’t until 2011 that Brooklyn Brewery co-founder Tom Potter and cocktail and spirits expert Allen Katz got together and founded The New York Distilling Company.
"Rye whiskey was the prevalent spirit of the NE States but largely disappeared after prohibition. The New York Distilling Company are part of its revival. Their rye is selected and grown exclusively by Pedersen Family Farm in the Fingerlakes Region of Upstate New York - a good 5 hour drive from Brooklyn.
"What’s with the big apple? Go figure! (OK, so the batch from the NYDC has been finished in an Apple Jack Cask)."
