Breakout 8 Year Old is a rye-heavy whiskey with some corn and malted barley in the mix, too. Made by the Tennessee Spirits Company, this is warming and fruity with notes of cherry and spice. The rebellious flavor of Breakout Rye Whiskey gives rye drinkers a bold way to shake up their normal routine, and provides a smooth introduction to those new to the world of rye whiskey. It has a rich nose of caramel and vanilla, and is a soft as butter on the palate. Its full-bodied flavor has a smoky, toffee overtone and a nice warm mouth feel.
