Nulu Toasted Rye Whiskey (Office Fail) - Bourbon Pursuit & Keg N Bottle Private Barrel Pick 750 ml

About This Item



On September 16th, 2001 Kenny, Tony, Andy, Adam, and Brian met up with Chase from Prohibition Spirits for what we thought was going to be a Bourbon and Toasted Bourbon selection.  He had the team taste through a couple of barrels that had been preselected which were great, but  Kenny asked him to find one more, just so they could be sure.  Chase was on a mission using his forklift to shift pallets around like building blocks.  Bingo, he found a barrel out of East Bernstadt Cooperage which was an unusual find, and it didn't disappoint.  Onto the Toasted barrel.  Chase found them 2 bourbons and wanted them to try 2 ryes.  Side by side the Rye was a clear and unanimous winner.  Another terrific selection and 2 barrels you are going to want to make sure you add to your collection. 

DETAILS:  Nulu Toasted Rye Whiskey, 116 proof, Barrel R92T, Age 5 years, distilled in IN.

  • Nose - The nose is much more classically rye than I remembered at the pick: candied mint, buttery, leather, and orchard fruits.
  • Palate - The palate is dry and saturating: stewed apples, wine-soaked grapes, graham cracker, buttered rye bread, orange peel, black pepper, tickling herbals that spark alongside the sides of the tongue. Sticky and bold.
  • Finish - slow toffee-like movement that rolls down the tongue with subtle charred marshmallow, toasted pecan, and lingering with clove.
