Description

Dad's Hat Rye Whiskey

Dad's Hat Rye is made from a mash of 80% rye, 15% malted barley and 5% malted rye. After Mihalich sources all of the grains from local farmers in Pennsylvania, he slowly ferments the mash for approximately seven days before distilling it though a 500-gallon Christian Carl copper-pot still imported from Germany. The still, which is augmented by a side-column, allows Mihalich to remove any impurities in the whiskey, while simultaneously refining its flavor and texture.

After distillation, Dad's Hat Pennsylvania Rye is aged in charred, white oak quarter casks (15-gallon casks) for just under one year in a temperature-controlled warehouse. The small casks and climate-controlled aging give the whiskey hints of cinnamon, dried fruits, nuts and candied apple, which nicely balance out the flavor of the spicy rye.

After maturing, each cask of Dad's Hat Rye Whiskey is brought to proof and bottled by hand.

Tasting Notes

Nose is woody and herbaceous. Bold and spicy rye flavor with a bit of heat on the back of the tongue. Initial rye notes gives way to subtle flavors of citrus, cinnamon, nuts and rock candy. Lingering, medium-long finish.

Proof 90 (45% ABV)
