It’s always nice to see transparency by smaller distilleries such as The Family Jones. Their Atticus Jones Rye is aged for a minimum of two years in Cooper’s Select American Oak char #3 barrels. The rye presents a very youth-heavy flavor profile with the palate showing enough hints to make you wonder what it may taste like with more time in the wood. Overall it’s the highlighting of the grain as the predominant trait throughout the sip that leaves Atticus Jones Rye coming across as overlay youthful and lacking in depth. The bottle being reviewed is number 1175.
