Minor Case Straight Rye comes to us via Limestone Branch, and takes its name from Minor Case Beam - yes, relative of that famous whiskey-makin' Beam family. An interesting rye which has enjoyed a finishing period in Sherry casks before bottling, which imparts a balancing sweetness to the classically spicy spirit.
