A very rich and non traditional rye. Lots of chocolaty tones and caramel.
Redwood Empire Emerald Giant Rye
Whiskey /45% ABV / Sonoma County, California, United States
- Rye Whiskey
- Sonoma County, United States
Named after the fastest growing Redwood in the world, Emerald Giant is a fan favorite in the Rye world. We started with a mash-bill of 95% premium rye and aged it for over 3 years in new charred oak barrels. Spicy with an exceptionally smooth finish, it is a great choice in your classic whiskey cocktails. Natural rye aroma followed by a mix of brown sugar and cinnamon with a faint hint of pepper. On the palate, there is an unparalleled spice complexity with smooth rye notes. A hint of honey and orange peel becomes peppery with a lingering cinnamon finish.

A lighter rye in body, it nevertheless has a wonderful balanced spiciness to it, yet with very smooth finish with notes of orange peel and cinnamon. Makes both a delicious Old Fashioned and Manhattan, as well as being one of the few eyes I enjoy drinking on the rocks with just a splash of water.
