New Riff’s Maltster line explores different malted grains used in bourbon mashbills. By malting the rye grain for this release, New Riff softens the usual punchiness their whiskeys are known for. While their trademark spice and heat still come on the tail end of the finish, this malted rye bourbon is quite the catch thanks to its amazing softness and buttery smooth mouthfeel. Its flavor profile nicely complements its softness yet doesn’t forget its heritage either, featuring some nice heat on the finish. This interesting side quest New Riff ventured down has resulted in a winner.
