Filibuster Dual Cask Rye Whiskey is a spicy young rye whiskey that is rested in French oak casks to create a smooth yet fiery and flavorful profile.
Filibuster Dual Cask Rye Whiskey
Rye Whiskey is the quintessential American whiskey. At the turn of the last century, distilleries flourished in the east – especially in Western Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York. Rye was the grain of choice, as it made light, spicy whisky that was fabulous neat, or in a cocktail – the original Manhattan recipe calls for Rye – think sweet and spicy. When Prohibition became the law of the land in 1920, most of the distilleries that made rye whiskey were forced to shut down. Spirit production moved underground, and corn was widely utilized, as it was abundant and cheap. Corn whiskey became the new normal, and Rye was largely forgotten, except when depicted in Hollywood westerns – no self-respecting cowboy would be caught dead drinking anything else. Today, top-quality American Rye is being demanded by whiskey drinkers once again, and Filibuster is making sure their voices are heard!
Filibuster Dual Cask Rye Whiskey is blended in small batches of traditionally-crafted spicy young rye whiskey with a bit of barrel-aged bourbon for balance, and rested for a few months in wine-seasoned French oak casks before bottling. The result is a unique whiskey that showcases rye’s fiery spice, but is uncommonly smooth going down. This unique process takes more time and costs more money, but the results speak for themselves.
