Product Description

Old Forester Rye features a mash bill of 65% Rye, 20% Malted Barley, and 15% Corn. Such a high proportion of barley allows for a fully natural fermentation process, forgoing the need for artificial enzymes commonly found in high rye mash bills. Additionally, a generous percentage of malt yields a unique floral character, balancing the sharp, brisk spice of the rye grain. Continuing our legacy of quality and consistency, Old Forester uses its own proprietary yeast strain, produces every barrel, and distills every drop.

    The flavor is pretty good but very stout for a whiskey. I put a cube or two to cool it down for a perfect sipping whiskey.

    I give this 5 for what it is. Are there better whiskeys out there - let alone ryes? Sure. But this is one of the best I’ve liked in its class. It’s got a manageable spice similar to a Bottled in Bond bottle but a smoothness that almost makes you feel like you stole it, considering it’s $25-30 price range, and almost hides it’s 100 proof. Need to give someone a “good whiskey” but can’t drop a lot of cash? You get this one. It’s simple but versatile and makes a great Old Fashioned. Often find myself falling back on good Old Forester Rye.

FAQs

Yes, whiskey is gluten-free, thanks to the distillation process used to make it. The Celiac Disease Foundation concluded that it can safely be considered gluten-free, though it’s still possible that some people with high gluten sensitivity or celiac disease could have a reaction to whiskeys created from certain grains.
Whiskey can include a large number of different distilled spirits made from fermented grain mash — usually cereal grains like rye, barley malt, wheat and corn. The drink undergoes aging in wooden containers, most often oak.
One of the reasons whiskey is so popular is that there’s no single way to enjoy it. There’s the purist route — straight and neat, no mixers, no ice — but what fun is being a purist? You can add water to it, which can enhance certain bottles’ flavors or you can add it with other ingredients to make delicious mixed drinks. It’s the foundation of the Manhattan, the Old Fashioned, the Whiskey Sour and many others.
