Malted Rye BiB
New Riff Distilling
Peggy Noe Stevens
Creamy corn pudding. Pencil shavings and sweet molasses. Apple crumble and apricot marmalade. Honeyed granola with milk chocolate.
Sweet grains of corn predominate, then it softens with delicate white pepper. Macaroons and streaks of milk chocolate.
Texture of golden-brown sugar and spice mix beautifully.
My kind of whiskey sour with the sweetness of the whiskey making friends with the sour mix. Ice it up.
Crabapples and dark brown sugar set the tone with a touch of herbal rye spiciness.
Lots of rich caramel here. Very Bourbon like, except for that tell-tale rye spice. There’s some vanilla and baked apple too, with a dusting of baking spices.
Caramel winds down and milk chocolate appears. Then light brown sugar and sweet oak.
Very much a Kentucky-style rye with a lot of caramel sweetness. Very smooth and approachable.
