In our continued effort to bring you exceptional and unique creations, we are excited to announce our latest limited time offering: the Dark Star Double Oak Rye Whiskey. 

In December 2015, MGP filled a dozen barrels from an undisclosed cooperage with 95/5 rye whiskey to test their barrels. By 2019, so much whiskey had leaked out, the test was ended. Thankfully, they took the whiskey, vatted it, and rebarreled it into five Zac Cooperage #4 Char barrels. 

We were offered the opportunity to secure these unique 8.5- year-old Double Oaked Rye barrels! The total yield will be just 175 cases. These 5 barrels are all that exist, making this release truly one-of-a-kind. 

The nose opens with a delightful array of aromas reminiscent of sweet almonds and peppercorn spice, followed by the comforting scent of freshly baked rye bread. A subtle hint of liquorish sweetness intertwines with notes of anise and pine, evoking images of a serene forest. Undertones of green tea and honeydew add a refreshing quality, while accents of mandarin orange and honeycomb lend a bright, citrusy sweetness. A whisper of dill rounds out the bouquet, adding a touch of herbal complexity. 

On the palate, vibrant flavors of orange rind and golden honey take center stage, accompanied by a dusty essence that evokes memories of sun-drenched fields. The pine notes from the nose gracefully transition into a summer pine sensation, reminiscent of warm days in the forest. Subtle hints of crisp green apple offer a tart contrast, while creamy custard caramel and velvety vanilla custard provide a luscious sweetness. Peppercorn spice dances across the tongue, adding a satisfying kick to the ensemble. 

The finish is a harmonious blend of warm spice and oily richness, coating the palate in a comforting embrace. Sweet herbs and fresh mint linger, intermingling with a gentle pepperiness that persists long after the final sip. The complexity of the spice and sweetness is beautifully balanced, leaving a lingering impression of depth and sophistication. 

"Shall we go, you and I while we can?" Embrace this Dark Star Double Oak Rye and let it take on a sensory journey through its rich, complex flavors.
