Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance:
In the glass, this whiskey exhibits a deep, rich amber hue, hinting at its complexity and depth gained from the Cognac cask finishing process.

Nose (Aroma):
The aromatic profile opens with the signature spiciness of rye, layered with notes of dried fruit and dark chocolate. The Cognac influence is discernable, lending nuances of grape, oak, and a hint of vanilla.

Palate (Taste):
This is a whiskey that defies simple characterization. The initial sip reveals a bold spice profile that is immediately softened by the creamy richness imparted by the Cognac casks. Flavors of plum, apricot, and honey emerge, mingling with traditional rye notes of cinnamon and clove.

The finish is long, warm, and inviting, with a lingering sweetness perfectly balanced by the spice of rye and a faint trace of smoky oak.

The Cognac cask finishing gives this whiskey a luxurious, velvety mouthfeel, making it very approachable despite its high proof.

Third Base Market & Spirits Perspective:

We at Third Base Market & Spirits consider RY3 Cask Strength Cognac Cask Finish Rye Whiskey to be a bottle for the adventurous drinker. Its unique finishing process and blend of 3 rye whiskeys make it a collector's item and an exceptional choice for those wanting to experience the intersection of traditional rye and the elegance of Cognac.

Pairing Suggestions:
The whiskey's complex profile makes it suitable for sipping neat or pairing with food that has both sweet and spicy components—perhaps a charcuterie board featuring spicy sausages and fig preserves.

RY3 tends to produce this whiskey in limited quantities due to the complexities involved in sourcing and aging, so it would be prudent to secure a bottle while supplies last.
