WE 94 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - This 10-year-old straight rye whiskey would make a top-notch Sazerac. Despite its rich, luxe aroma, this is light and smooth on the palate. Look for notes of sweet, creamy caramel and dried fruit enlivened by a signature rye bite and a sweet, surprisingly delicate finish with just a sprinkling of ginger and cinnamon.
Masterson’s is all rye and only rye, meeting the strictest definition of traditional rye whiskey. The rye is grown in the verdant Pacific Northwest, and we choose only rye that exhibits the perfect combination of weight, plumpness and rich, earthy fragrance. These key characteristics, along with our meticulous distillation process, give Masterson’s its uniquely smooth taste.
Masterson’s is a 100% rye whiskey that far exceeds industry standards for rye whiskey. Our artisans incorporate only the most fragrant and plump grains of rye and pure glacial water from the northern Rockies into a meticulous distillation process that utilizes an old-fashioned pot still.
