Corsair Dark Rye is a malted rye that is made without the use of any corn and aged for only 8 months in 15 gallon barrels. This results in a sip that doesn’t taste like a typical rye, and while its nose is lighter, the rest of the sip presents a nice balance of dark, rich flavors. It delivers just the right combination of intrigue and drinkability. For traditional rye lovers looking to branch out in the world of rye, this is worth the journey. The bottle being reviewed is number 670/840.
