Castle and Key Restoration Rye is the perfectly named release from the resurrected Old Taylor Distillery which was built by Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr. himself. A man with deep historical influence on the bourbon world and who is known today through his namesake whiskey E.H. Taylor.
Herbally rye spice, oak, roasted corn, toasted nuts, baked apples, cinnamon, caramel and some light bits of vanilla and clove. Castle and Key Restoration Rye is much spicier on the palate. Less sweet as well with more rustic and earthy tones coming through and it picks up more of that “typical” rye profile.
Mash Bill: 63% Rye, 17% Corn, 20% Malt
