Alberta Rye

Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky is crafted by the largest producer of rye distillate in North America, Alberta Distillers, Ltd, this is the first time this rye has been in the American market. Alberta Rye Dark Batch Whisky is a blend made of 91% rye, 8% bourbon and 1% sherry and best in classic cocktails. It has a distinct forward finish, and mellow oak and spiciness; it’s a blend and taste profile like no other rye whiskey.  At 90 proof this rye is pretty aggressive for just sipping. There are notes of plums, blackcurrant and sweet oak. The whiskey gets its intense hue from a bit of added sherry and unique aging conditions. Half of the rye is made in small pot stills and put in American oak for six years; the other half is column stilled and aged for 12 years in freshly used Jim Beam bourbon barrels.

The Knot

The Knot, from Ireland, defies description. This spirit is 100 proof so it is not exactly the typical liqueur, yet it is sweeter than a whiskey. Calling it "The Knot" seems to be a play on words. It is NOT a whiskey. That stated the Knot is definitely worth a shot (pun intended). It has an amber, caramel color. It has a spicy aroma. The flavor is like butterscotch with a spiciness that reminds me of gingerbread or cinnamon cookies. The Knot is great shot to warm up your holiday party. Cheers!
