Sagamore 7 Year Old "R/Bourbon II" Single Barrel Rye Whiskey
Pickup currently unavailable
A follow-up to R/Bourbon's Sagamore 7yr Rye from earlier this year (2022), this release is packed with flavor.
Sagamore is a favorite of mine: a perfect combination of flavor, age, and affordability. This single barrel is no different, delivering plenty of maple, a touch of cola sweetness, and a rich herbal backbone. It isn't dilly like MGP, Sagamore delivers a great, herbal character on the palate: black tea, sandalwood, orange zest, and a pinch of ango bitters. This pairs well with the middling tannins - there's plenty of oak without it drinking dry or tannic. Long finish, filled with brown sugar, orange peel, a light touch of blackberry, and a faint, subtle prickle of peppercorn.
