Stellum Rye (750 ml)

About This Item

The identity of Stellum Rye is rooted in a tried and true 95% Rye Indiana mash bill. To enhance this classic style, we incorporate small amounts of more barley-forward rye and choice barrels from both Kentucky and Tennessee. This brings a full, round mouthfeel and flashes of buttery sweetness to an otherwise spicy and tightly focused Rye Whiskey.
  • A blend of straight Rye Whiskeys
  • Distilled and Aged in TN, KY, IN
  • Bottled in Kentucky
  • 116.24 proof cask strength bottling

Tasting Notes: 

Appearance: Deep Copper

Nose: Stewed apples, peaches, and pears dominate the initial nose, along with an undertone of baking spices. Nutmeg and clove provide a counterbalance to the sweet fruits, while a light mint and licorice note bring further depth to the aroma

Palate: Aniseed, cardamom, and coriander wake up your palate with an intense spice punch. Notes of lemon peel and tangerine coming from the rye grain provide a nice citrus component to the overall spiciness. As the whiskey breathes in the glass, fresh green apples and spearmint arise, which offers just enough of a sweet component to engage all your taste buds.

Finish: Star anise, white pepper, and mint linger on the palate before fading into a honey-sweetened jasmine green tea.
