It’s not too often we come across a rye that drinks like Stagg Jr., yet Lost Lantern’s single barrel pick of a 5 year old Dad’s Hat rye packs a comparable punch. With robust flavors typically found in barrel proof bourbons, it intermittently finds room to also weave in its rye’s heritage. This is as bold of a rye as they come nowadays.

Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Rye is located in Bristol, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia. Known for being a traditional Pennsylvania-style rye, their mashbill is made up of just rye and malted barley. This gives the whiskey a noticeable kick, but the malted barley and rye also provides it a soft, chewy side as the boldness tames. Distilled using a pot still and aged in a 53 gallon cask for 5 years, the end result of this Lost Lantern Single Cask is a powerfully bold rye. Skewing dark, with plenty of maple and oak to go around, the inclusion of spearmint, cinnamon, and baking spice helps bring the whiskey back around to its rye roots. If you’re not familiar with Lost Lantern or Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Rye, this is a bold place to start. A 188 bottle release.
