Shortbarrel Small Batch Rye 101

$59.99

Basketball, Racing, and Rye Whiskey, just a few of the things for which Indiana is known. When we started researching ryes for our first Shortbarrel expression, we knew where to look first. Although non-age stated, release #3 is a blend of non chill filtered MGP rye barrels, all over 5 years old and blended to our specifications. We feel that 101 is the perfect proof to hold up to cocktails, sip neat, or enjoy on the rocks. The spice blends with a subtle sweetness to dance this blend across all of your taste buds.

Tasting Notes

Mouth: Caramel, vanilla, slight mint, surprisingly sweet while holding onto the signature Shortbarrel bold, lingering spice that has become our trademark.

Aroma: Rye spice hits you quickly and then fades into lightly floral notes. Slight notes of baking spices, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, and mint candy in the background.

Finish: Despite a lower proof for some. The long, spice finish remained. It consisted of clove, rye spice, almond, oak, and tobacco leaf.

Shortbarrel Mezcal Finished Whiskey

Shortbarrel Mezcal Finished Whiskey

$59.99

What happens when a mezcal barrel meets a 5 ½-year-old Kentucky American Whiskey for 8 months … The result - a perfectly balanced blend of Kentucky and Oaxaca flavors that highlights the dark, rich oak of aged whiskey and the bright vanilla and citrus notes of mezcal - with just the right amount of smoke. Bottled at 111 proof, El Jefe balances strong, smooth, and sweet.

Shortbarrel is proud to bring to life this unique blend of flavors that pushes the boundaries of finished whiskey. Consisting of only 4 barrels, this super small batch American Whiskey is a blend of 5 ½-year-old Kentucky Straight American Whiskey (91% corn, 9% malted barley) finished for 8 months in ex-reposado mezcal barrels.

Tasting Notes

Aroma: Sweet American Whiskey upfront with a gentle hint of smokey mezcal (almost woody) on the first nose. Slight notes of vanilla, charred orange, pepper, sweet corn, and herbal background. 

Mouth: Orange’s, smooth creamy vanilla, honey, cinnamon spice, very bright citrus keeps going and going. This is 111 proof after all. Even with the proof, this offer’s up a buttery-like taste because of the 91% corn in the mashbill. The smokey flavor is there but not overpowering. The smoke shows up more with an ice cube in the glass which also enhances the normally known mezcal finish you would expect.

Finish: The extra time in the barrel helped here and so does the proof. This is one of those finishes that will make you want to grab a second/third glass as you try to figure out the nose and mouthfeel on this. The finish is long as you would expect from a 111 proof whiskey but it’s not a punch in the chest. This finish whiskey is creamy, almost buttery at times, the mezcal impact becomes increasingly evident as the warming finish develops, adding nuance to a palate that finds room for all the tasting notes.

Final notes: This mezcal finish was made to be drunk neat, with a cube or in a cocktail. We highly recommend adding a small ice cube or a drop of water to this whiskey to really let the finish shine. At this proof, mixologists should have a great time coming up with new and exciting recipes. Salud! to high standards and great friends. Shortbarrel hopes you enjoy this whiskey as much as we did experimenting with it.

Wine Enthusiast -Kentucky, USA - "Think of a sun-drenched meadow: grass, mint, hot rock and flowers, all of it vibrantly warm. The nose is repeated almost exactly in the mouth, with the addition of the sweet-dry wood of the warehouse. The herbal intensity is why rye makes a great Manhattan."
