December 17, 2020 (Louisville, KY) - Just in time for the holiday season, Buzzard’s Roost Sippin’ Whiskeys has announced the release of its Buzzard's Roost Toasted Barrel Rye, a thoughtfully blended three-year-old rye whiskey that’s finished in one-of-a-kind toasted barrels. Set to hit shelves in December this will be a limited release in Kentucky that complements the core line of Single Barrel, Barrel Strength, and Very Small Batch rye expressions.
"I wanted this whiskey to not only have a unique flavor profile but a very specific flavor profile,” said Jason Brauner, Buzzard’s Roost Master Blender. "By leaving off the char and simply going with a toasted barrel, it allows me to quickly and accurately deliver those flavors."
Toasted Barrel Rye is finished in proprietary barrels that feature custom toast profiles which lends additional vanilla character to the whiskey. Toasted barrels in general allow the whiskey to extract more barrel flavor in a shorter amount of time versus a heavy char. Presented at 105 Proof, Toasted Barrel Rye will be available on-premise and in Kentucky liquor stores with a suggested retail price of $79.
"Innovation within the bounds of tradition has always been a value that guides our company", added Judy Hollis Jones, Buzzard’s Roost President and CEO. “Toasted Barrel Rye is a reflection of that mindset because it pairs standard new oak barrels with a unique toasting technique to produce a specific flavor.”
