F.E.W. RYE Whiskey- With an ample proportion of rye in its mashbill, along with corn and malted barley, FEW Rye is a fantastic example of top-notch American craft distilling. It comes from Evanston, Illinois, a city that suffered Prohibition for over one hundred years thanks to many of its advocates hailing from its dry streets. In fact, FEW rather cheekily takes its name from the initials of Frances Elizabeth Willard, a key figure in the Temperance Movement.
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: The aroma is particularly fruity with notes of apples, pears and plums with a spicy after thought.
Palate: The flavor is as fruity as the aroma with more apples and pears but also a little unripe banana and candied orange peel.
Finish: The finish is long and lingering with notes of fresh orange juice, spice and apple tart.
Overall: This is a truly exceptional tipple with a beautifully balanced and fruity flavour profile.
