St. George Rye 2YO New Oak Barrels – USA
55% || That Boutique-y Whisky Company
Back in 1982, Time Magazine did a very dangerous thing – they crowned a Machine of the Year rather than a Person of the Year. The ‘Computer’ was named Machine of the Year. This is an outrage because 1) it’s practically inviting robots to take over the world, and 2) the Machine of the Year 1982 should obviously have been Jörg Rupf’s still, with which he started St. George Spirits in California, USA! We’ve gone and bottled a rye from these American craft distilling pioneers..
Nose: Spiced apple crumble, with a dusting of brown sugar and cinnamon on top.
Palate: Fruit-filled pastries, more cinnamon and a hint of menthol.
Finish: Red berries, strawberry jam and a kick of black pepper.
