Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, Old Pepper Single Barrel Rye Whiskey radiates an inviting, deep amber hue, revealing its rich maturation process. The legs are slow-moving and thick, foreshadowing a texture that is both substantial and satiating.
The olfactory profile opens with a rhapsody of traditional rye spiciness accentuated by notes of dark chocolate and leather. A trace of dried orange peel lingers in the background, accompanied by subtle undertones of toasted oak and caramel. The aromatics are complex yet harmonious, revealing new facets with each inhalation.
Upon the first sip, you're greeted by an assertive rye character—spicy and grain-forward, seamlessly integrated with a palate of dark fruits like blackberries and currants. Mid-palate, the whiskey introduces flavors of cinnamon and clove, which elegantly transition into subtler notes of butterscotch and vanilla, likely owed to the extended aging in American oak barrels.
The finish is long-lasting and exceptionally smooth for a rye of this proof. It leaves behind a warm, tingling sensation coupled with a resurgence of the initial spicy rye characteristics and a mellow, oaken sweetness. It's a dynamic finish that invites contemplation and another sip.
Expertly distilled and matured to perfection, Old Pepper Single Barrel Rye Whiskey offers a rye experience that is as rich in history as it is in flavor. Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or as the cornerstone of a luxurious cocktail, this is a whiskey that continually reveals new layers of complexity. Third Base Market & Spirits is honored to offer this exceptional rye whiskey to those who appreciate the very finest in American spirits.
