Mayor Pingree Rye Whiskey is made from a combination of two mash bills and aged for a minimum of 4 years in 53-gallon barrels. This whiskey is a classic representation of an American Rye proving that there is no substitute for proper aging and barrel size. Valentine Distilling invests meticulously in every step of the process and delivers one of the consistently best whiskies in the American distilling arena.
Distillation Notes: Mayor Pingree Rye Whiskey is triple pot distilled, a truly rare method of American whiskey production. Distilling the whiskey three times gives Head Distiller Justin Aden the opportunity to coax dramatic flavors created during fermentation, which creates esters that will ultimately produce intense fruity notes with texture and mouthfeel.
Tasting Notes: Mayor Pingree Rye is an archetypal example of rye flavors and aromas, presented impressively through a tremendously smooth and mild body that is very difficult to deliver in four year old rye. The nature-forward notes of wild honey, rhubarb, and fresh hayloft collude very well with traditional notes of caramel, macadamia nut, dusty oak, and the hallmark rye spice finish. A very friendly and informing pour, excellent for classic rye cocktails.
