(The Two Parts Rye)² : The House Rye Challenge Part 2

Jim Beam Rye

Website Stuff: Drier and spicier than it's sweet bourbon cousins. Rye adds character and depth to any whisky coctail. Pairs especially well with fruit flavors.

Taste: Peppery, with shades of cinnamon and mint. Shows a slight sweet side at finish. Just a bit.

How does it really taste? Almost just like they say on the website. Weird. I don't consider it peppery, just tannic.

Manhattan: It mellows out quite a bit in the Manhattan. The cinnamon comes to the fore.

Cost: $17.95
Grade: B
Cost Adjusted Grade: A-
Manhattan Grade: B
