Founder's Rye Whiskey by Taconic Distillery brings out all the best of New York's mineral-rich terroir. The traditionally spicy rye is cooled and rounded by the artisanal spring water on Taconic Distillery's farm and a helping of malted barley. Aged for a minimum of four years, Founder's Rye Whiskey is clean, crisp, and expertly balanced. On a cold day, enjoy a glass neat or use it to fashion the perfect Manhattan.
Where other young ryes are redolent of dried banana, Founder’s Rye presents an uncharacteristic twist: banana pudding. You might therefore expect a particular smoothness to this 90 Proof rye. It doesn’t disappoint. An undercurrent of woodiness and spice gets under the tongue and tends to command the flavor, but it’s the rye’s mild sweetness, like summer fruit just before full ripeness, that glides it along.
The finish is clean and even smoother, as fresh bananas and watermelon linger into a mild, mellow finish. This is a fine sipping Rye, and a wonderful addition to the expanding variety of young Rye whiskeys coming from America’s small, independent distillers.
