Bradshaw Straight Rye is the followup to Bradshaw Straight Bourbon. Bradshaw in its name references Terry Bradshaw, who had one of the most iconic and memorable careers in the history of professional football. Drafted number one overall in 1970, Bradshaw played for 14 seasons as the quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He led the team to win four Super Bowls over the span of his career. Like the bourbon, this rye is bottled at an ABV of 51.9%, which is a nod to his career passing completion percentage.

Bradshaw Rye is very similar to its bourbon counterpart, in the sense that it isn’t necessarily bad, however, it also isn’t all that impressive either. The sip’s scents and flavors are easily identified through their lack of cohesiveness. Seeing as the brand chose to follow up their bourbon with a similar lackluster rye, it would seem that for now this is a pure cash play on Terry Bradshaw’s name versus actually trying to put out a quality product that can justify its price.
