Lock, Stock & Barrel Limited Release 13 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey is crafted in Pennsylvania — the birthplace of rye whiskey — from 100% rye grains. The rye is grown in the Pacific Northwest, where only grains that exhibit the perfect combination of weight, plumpness and rich, earthy fragrance are harvested. After the grains have been milled and mashed, they are fermented before being distilled through a double copper-pot still. Following distillation, the rye is aged in new, charred American oak casks for 13 years before being bottled at nearly barrel proof (101.3 proof). As a result of its extra-long maturation, the rye has an aroma of salted caramel, buttered popcorn and toffee. The aroma gives way to complex notes of sweet vanilla, milk chocolate, roasted coffee and honeyed oak, which are nicely balanced with a subtle spicy undertone, and lead a sweet, elegant finish.
