This Kentucky-made rye represents the second release in the Founder’s Collection line and is extremely limited with only 1,315 bottles in total. The name “Boxergrail” honors Louisville’s boxing heritage, and this release adds age, proof, and more carefully curated barrels to Rabbit Hole’s standard 95 proof Boxergrail Rye offering. Consisting of only 7 barrels that were part of the very first rye barrels company founder Kaveh Zamanian created, the resulting flavor profile is mouth-hugging with just the right balance of rye spice and sweet notes. It is unequivocally a crowd-pleasing and great tasting whiskey. However its asking price, high end packaging, and ultra-limited production quantity gear it towards being more of a collector's item than a whiskey consumers will purchase simply to enjoy.
