14 year light whiskey, 4 year rye whiskey (100% rye), 3.5 year rye whiskey (95% rye/5% malted barley)
Toasted barrel finishes are all the rage right now, and we think that the team over at RY3 knocked it out of the park with this one! They really push the art of blending forward, searching far and wide for 3 unique whiskeys that together equal much more than the sum of their parts. The Toasted Barrel rounds out the high proof of this blend to add excellent depth to the pour.
120.6 proof (60.3% ABV)
RY3 Whiskey is the latest project from Phenomenal Spirits, a blending house located in Virginia Beach, VA. They initially gained regard for their Ron Izalco 10-Year rum, and then turned their attention to the whiskey world, utilizing 3 different mashbills of whiskeys to create their RY3 blended rye whiskey. Master Blender Matt Witzig, formerly of Jos. A. Magnus & Co., crafts this blend using 3 phenomenal whiskeys, 3 carefully handpicked mashbills, and 3 distinctive age statements, which are meticulously blended with artisanal distinction and bottled at cask strength to create this magical liquid. In their words, “We have respected the traditions of rye whiskey and skillfully challenged the art of blending.”
The Tasting Panel
The blend of three whiskies (American and Canadian rye), three mash bills and three age statements add up to RY3, a sumptuous and heavenly honeycombed mouthful of peach nectar and maple bran. White pepper punctuates an otherwise seamless coat of orange peel, vanilla musk, and cigar leaf. At 100 proof, it shines.
