Sometimes you hit a homerun on your first at-bat. That is how we felt at Corsair we opened our first experimental barrel of aged 100% Rye whiskey. Our customers seemed to like it too since they bought up the (unannounced) initial release in 10 days.
It seems there are other fans out there as well. The spirits department at K and L Wines in California was so excited they ordered a future barrel’s worth of product. Here is an except of their review:
Yesterday I got a sneak peak of what to expect when Corsair releases their 1 year old 100% rye this Fall. One word – amazing! … I really like this new Corsair, even though it is a meager year in age, because they somehow managed to get it fairly rich to balance out the spice. I had to taste it about three times to make sure I wasn’t missing something. This has all the spice that you expect from rye, a suprisingly smooth entry, plenty of kick, and a long finish that doesn’t spit grain alcohol back into your tonsils.
