Whisky: Copper Fox Rye
Distillery: The Copper Fox Distillery, Sperryville, Virginia
Age: 12 months, date bottled Oct. 01, 09 label reads
Proof: 45% ABV; approx 90 proof
Notes: Listen to BourbonBlog.com‘s podcast with Rick Wasmund below and on this link. who happens to be a fan of the whisky too.
Color: Light copper-amber
Nose: Spicey and somewhat roasted nuttiness
Taste: The rye has earthy spices and savory, round flavor. Hints of hazelnut laced with the smoke of the applewood and cherrywood that have been added and aged progessively. The unusually high percentage of malt in the rye balances well in the whiskey. A whisky that will get your attention in a good way. More powerful and “meaty” to the tastebuds than many ryes we have reviewed at BourbonBlog.com.
Finish: Deep peppery notes that linger.
