A unique blend of rye from Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee produced a whiskey with a decidedly Old Fashioned twist.

Located in Saratoga, Wyoming, Brush Creek Distillery currently sources (and then ages) whiskey for a number of their products, but is also distilling and aging their own distillate. Brush Creek Straight Rye Whiskey currently falls under their sourced product category, but don’t let that deter you without knowing all of the details.

Brush Creek Straight Rye Whiskey is a blend consisting of rye from Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee distilleries. While we see plenty of sourced rye products from each of these respected states, it's much rarer to see a singular product containing all three.

The result is a whiskey that has a rather dynamic flavor profile. The nose is pleasant and fresh, consisting of a fun combination of apple caramel, peppermint, orange, and cedar. The palate tastes like an Old Fashioned, with notable flavors of orange, lemon, and cherry, with green apple and malt thrown in. The finish skews simple but still effective with its pop of rye spice, toasted oak, and chocolate. There’s a lot to enjoy here, and while its slight roughness keeps it from reaching greater heights, its price more than makes up for it.

The sample used for this review was provided to us at no cost courtesy its respective company. We thank them for allowing us to review it with no strings attached.
