Like O.H. Ingram River Aged Whiskey, River Aged Rye ages on a first-of-its-kind floating rickhouse - a moored barge on the riverbank of Ballard County, KY. The company more fully explains their aging process on their website, with a focus on the unique aspects of motion, temperature, and humidity that impact how the whiskey ages differently than it might on land. Also like their whiskey, River Aged Rye showcases a viscous mouthfeel and lack of any youthful notes, which is especially notable considering its age. River Aged Rye errs on the sweeter side, with flavors of creme brulee, butterscotch, and hints of dark fruit leading the charge. It’s a more unique flavor profile than their flagship whiskey, but not necessarily better per se. With that being said, this experiment in river barrel aging continues to provide satisfying results making me excited for what is yet to come.
