overall

Old Overlholt 114 Proof Rye joined Old Overholt 11 Year Rye as one of two limited edition releases for the brand in 2020. Notable is the fact that much like Old Overholt Bottled in Bond, 114 Proof is also four years old, which leads to an interesting comparison. The sip is full of earthy, dry, and spicy notes all layered with varying types of grain flavors. The end result is a sip that’s bold and nuanced, and makes you work to pick out the flavors while you battle the proof. It’s enjoyable and makes you wish that Old Overholt would make this a permanent addition to its lineup, especially for the price.
