(rī)1 Rye Whiskey from Beam Spirits
We've had a moderate obsession with rye whiskey lately. Our current favorite is Rittenhouse followed closely by Jim Beam's yellow-labeled rye offering, but let's say we're open to suggestions. That's why we're excited to hear about (rī)1 from Beam Spirits. Well, we're not sure about the nigh-untypable name (why someone would try to market an un-Googleable name in this day and age is beyond us), but the booze sounds like good stuff. Here's what they have to say about their hooch:
Bottled at 92 proof, (rī)1 features a light, slightly spicy flavor and a long, luxurious finish. Straight, the nose offers a gentle, peppery nod to its rye heritage. Cut with water, the scents of dried fruit and cinnamon push to the front, providing a rich palate experience.
Sounds great, but as an ultra-premium rye, it's a fair price point over our less-than $20 current faves, clocking in at close to $50. They make some mean bourbons so color us curious, and we hope we get to try it out sooner than later.
