This is a tremendous, Smooth, full bodied flavorful whiskey that is not too “hot” or too sweet. However, even though I ordered the 11 year I got the 10 year, so my review is pertinent for the 10 yr. absolutely delicious. Very enjoyable.
Kentucky Owl Wiseman Rye Whiskey
Whiskey /50.4% ABV / Kentucky, United States
- Rye Whiskey
- Kentucky, United States
- Years Aged
The nose on this rye has elements of sweet pine, honey, nougat, vanilla, cloves and lavender. Oaky undertones, subtle cedar saw dust or fresh split cedar. Rich in consistency and not forwardly spicy on the nose. It immediately coats the entire palate and nutmeg and cinnamon give way to pepper spice with vanilla on the front and anise across the middle. Subtle cinnamon spice clings to the finish.View all products by Kentucky OwlCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

A group of us were at a very high end restaurant celebrating a friend's 50th birthday when the Sommelier was taking the wine order. The entire group was doing a pairing, but I am not a wine drinker and wanted to try something new. He suggested the Kentucky Owl and told me that they only are able to get a very limited supply even with the extreme volume of alcohol sales they have. I AM SO GLAD I LISTENED TO HIM!!! Simply the best Rye I have had. I almost don't need to drink it though, I could just simply sniff and enjoy the aroma and bouquet. It is an amazing whiskey and one I could not recommend higher.
