James Oliver Rye Whiskey is made from a mash of 100% rye grains, which are mashed and fermented before being distilled through a copper pot still. Following distillation, the whiskey is aged in new, American oak casks with a #4 char. Typically, the degree of charring within a cask is measured on a scale of one to four, with a #1 char referring to casks that have been slightly toasted, and a #4 char referring to casks that have been charred so heavily that the interior resembles an alligator hide.
James Oliver Rye Whiskey has a golden amber color, along with an aroma of granola, greek yogurt, rye, and peppercorn. Notes of spicy grains, buttered dough, and roasted nuts dominate the palate, and give way to a finish accented by notes of black pepper and honeyed nuts.
