Straight Rye Whiskey

Unlike most rye whiskeys, Cedar Ridge uses malted rye in its mash bill. To malt, the rye grains are soaked in water to germinate, then given a blast of hot air. Malting the rye generates an enzyme that is naturally helpful in the mashing process and adds weight and complex flavors of toast and biscuit to the whiskey.

The nose is so alluring and complex offering scents of baked apples, honey, roasted almonds, and caramel with accents of clove, allspice, and nutmeg. The palate in in full agreement with the nose delivering a lush fruit and caramel core with waves of brown spice, oak, and hints of leather, and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied with a rich fruit core while being vibrant with a bright dose of acidity providing perfect balance.
