It began in 1847 with a bold, satisfying taste that would make Indiana the rye capital of the world. For nearly 200 years, Lawrenceburg's master distillers and blenders have perfected the original handcrafted rye blends in one of America's last Prohibition-era distilleries. Rossville Union Rye Whiskey is a tribute to the golden age of rye made by the Masters of Rye at MGP. Blended from 83 special reserve barrels, Rossville Union Barrel Proof Rye is boldly bottled at 112.6-proof for a full, but balanced cask-strength rye experience. Singularly crafted, the smooth finish of this Barrel Proof beauty lingers on with each sip.
Warm vanilla meets juicy red fruit on the nose of this bottling. The palate opens with plenty of drying, tannic oak, and that rounded red fruit note emerges on the finish, alongside a dusting of cocoa power, clove and black pepper sizzle. Adding water brings the fruit forward and dials down the heat a bit.
