“THE PALATE IS SWEET UP FRONT, THEN GIVES WAY TO A BALANCE BETWEEN SPICY AND GRASSY NOTES, AND A DRY FINISH. THIS IS SIMPLY A FANTASTIC WHISKEY, FRESH BUT FULLY REALIZED AT JUST THREE YEARS.”

— Clay Risen, AMERICAN WHISKEY, BOURBON & RYE

“LUSH, SENSUAL AND TINGED WITH THE SHARPNESS OF ASIAN SPICES AND CINNAMON STICK THE KICK OF THE 90 PROOF SPIRITS DRAWS YOU INTO YOUR GRANDPAPPY’S FAVORITE SLURP. THIS IS DAMNED GOOD WHISKEY.”

— Warren Bobrow, FOODISTA

“WHAT I LIKED ABOUT IT IMMEDIATELY WAS ITS PURE RYE FLAVOR, THE WAY THE WOOD AND SPICE TEMPERED THE ALCOHOL WITHOUT OVERPOWERING THE INHERENT GRAIN.”

— David Driscoll, K&L WINE MERCHANTS

“ARTFULLY BLENDED TO SHOW ROUNDED HINTS OF CINNAMON, DRIED FRUITS, NUTS AND CANDIED APPLE… A RYE THAT SHOULDN’T BE FUSSED WITH IN OVERLY COMPLICATED COCKTAILS.”

— Craig LaBan, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

“PLENTY OF BRASH GRAIN INFLUENCE REMAINS IN THIS WHISKEY… SO MUCH CHARACTER CAN BE FOUND ONCE YOU PUSH INTO THE SPIRIT. CARAMEL AND VANILLA, CHERRY COLA, AND TOUCHES OF LICORICE AND GINGER ON THE FINISH.”

— Christopher Null, DRINKHACKER.COM

“DAD’S HAT IS GIVING THAT (MONONGAHELA RYE) STYLE A RESURGENCE. THE BRIGHT AND FRUITY SCENT MIXES VANILLA AND TROPICAL FRUIT. THE FLAVOR ALSO HAS A FUNKY EDGE, LIKE OVERRIPE BANANAS AND HONEY.”

— Kara Newman, WINE ENTHUSIAST MAGAZINE
