Widow Jane Oak Aged Rye Whiskey 45.5% 750ml
Aged in first-fill Bourbon casks, distilled from a rye mash and finished with new American Oak, this provides an intense flavour balanced with warm spice. Cut with limestone water from the legendary mines in Rosendale, NY and non-chill filtered for the deepest flavour. The aroma of cardamom, pineapple and orange, while the taste profile hints at maple, almond and apricot. The finish rounds out with white pepper and basswood. This is a spicy summer rye and makes some great cocktails. A good bitter or a splash of vermouth or ginger beer goes a long way. Tasting Notes: Nose: Clover honey, orange peel and tea Taste: Brown sugar, white pepper and rye grain Finish: Dried peach and almond biscuit
To build a great city, you start with the toughest foundation known. New York City did just that with the natural cement made from limestone found only in Rosendale, NY. The greatest structures in New York from the gargantuan caissons that allowed the Brooklyn Bridge to soar, to the Statue of Liberty's 27,000-ton pedestal, to the Empire State Building itself are all held fast and strong by that Rosendale stone. When the Widow Jane team set out to produce their own whiskey, they wanted to offer something that was bold and rich with character but most importantly had the intense taste of New York in each sip. Widow Jane products use water taken directly from the legendary mines of Rosendale, NY. This self-renewing source of water is naturally filtered through limestone and collects in the massive underground caverns.
