Just in time for Father’s Day, Distillery 291 announced two new tasting room releases - 291 Colorado Straight Rye Whiskey and 291 Colorado Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Matured in deep-charred, new American white oak barrels for three years each.

“This year, these two special releases are a tribute to the two young men that do me the honor of calling me Dad,” said Michael Myers, owner and founding distiller of 291. “Our Father’s Day releases are always meaningful to us, and these straight whiskeys are a great way to commemorate the day and to acknowledge that we all get better as we get older.”

SRWBP - 291  Colorado Straight Rye Whiskey Barrel Proof

Batch #2 - 699 bottles (100 available for delivery)

------

Buttery: caramel, toffee

Earthy: leather, pipe tobacco

Spices: cinnamon, clove

Wood: hints of toasted oak and aspen

Loads of rich caramel and toffee up front on the nose. Leather and pipe tobacco add an earthiness, while cinnamon and clove balance it out with some spice. Hints of toasted oak and aspen round out the nose. The palate is viscous, with the clove, toffee, tobacco, and toasted oak at the forefront. There is a warming black pepper note with the return of the caramel for the long, pleasant finish. This is an assertive and spice forward rye, and yet somehow, at the same, a soft and sweet rye.

 

ABV: 63.5%
