Buffalo Trace’s three Kosher Whiskeys are the first Kosher whiskeys from a major U.S. whiskey distillery. Likely a surprise to some, the Rye Recipe is in fact a bourbon, with “rye” referring to the whiskey’s secondary grain. At seven years old, there is ample oak and leather woven throughout. The whiskey's fruit notes are its highlight, bringing a nice balance to the oak and injecting much needed dimension. Despite being largely straightforward and even somewhat boring at times, the whiskey is a rather enjoyable sip when its fruit notes open up. The Rye Recipe would actually make a great everyday bourbon if you could in fact find it on any given day in a store. Unfortunately, that probably won’t be the case.
