Peach seems to be a running theme with Riverset Rye. From the opening scents of ripe peaches to the interwoven peach flavors throughout the palate and finish, it’s hard to ignore. There’s a subtle undertone of spice, that to a degree helps balance things out, yet overall this is a sweet rye. While it won’t wow when poured neat, it also won’t disappoint either. Where I really see this shining is in summertime cocktails that call for a slightly sweeter base whiskey.
