Happy FRYEday! . Coming in today with a tasting from @middlewestspirits . Something new for me, as this is the first whiskey I’ve ever heard of that’s made with Pumpernickel Rye. Basically, through some research (yup, I did some sloothin’) it’s a specific dark rye used in some breads. Much more interesting is where the word “Pumpernickel” comes from. Apparently, it means “farting devil” due to the difficulty in digesting traditional pumpernickel bread… yeah, leading myself right into some devilish fart jokes in the comments on this one. I hope Middle West Spirits finds the humor in it all 😬 . Moving on, it’s dark in color for a three year rye, and substantially rich in flavor. At 96 proof I wouldn’t expect much heat, but it leaves a warmth in the back of your throat for a while. Nothing offensive, just a nice hug. Baking spices, plum, buttered toast, vanilla, orange zest, and leather all sort of make an appearance in this one. Its a traditional rye palate that really doesn’t give off anything I didn’t enjoy. It’s a good bottle of rye and is a testament to what you can do with 3 years in the barrel for a rye vs a bourbon. I will say, there isn’t much of a finish and I could use more layers. The flavor notes sort of all come out and once, likely due to the youth of it, but it’s good and I’m very interested in getting some pumpernickel bread to pair up with it. . Overall, if you’re a rye fan and don’t mind a little heat, you’ll dig this. For my bourbon people, this one’s probably a little spicy for you. . Many thanks to @middlewestspirits for letting me try this one. Really happy with it and it won’t last long before it’s gone. .

Happy FRYEday great people of Insta! . Also, Happy FRYEday the 13th the not-so-great people of Insta! . . This is the Rye brother of the bottle I posted yesterday. Again, totally worth seeking out if you can. I’m lucky to have been able to taste them both. 17 year old, Cask Strength Rye! That’s not a normal Rye age. This is like Saz18 age range… @foundnorthwhisky is not messing around. . Cheers to the weekend! 🥃🥃 . . . #foundnorth #foundnorthwhiskey #fridaythe13th #fryeday #bourbon #whiskey #whisky #instabourbon #instawhiskey #rye #whiskeypics #whiskeyphotography #whiskeygram #bourbongram #bourbonhunter #whiskeyporn #bourbonporn #cigars #bourbonhunting #bourbonwanderer #whiskeygram #whiskeylover #instabourbon #rarebourbon #allocatedbourbon #bourbonwhiskey #bourbonlife #dadjokes #dadjokesfordays

I wanted to start this off with a wise crack about “Finding North” or something about @foundnorthwhisky being lost and me finding them. That was until I cracked open this 18 year, Canadian Cask Strength Whisky and realized, jokes were not what they had in mind. I want to correct one thing they weren’t allowed to put on the label. This is Bourbon. Yes, I know, I know, made by our great friends to the north immediately makes this NOT Bourbon, but this is 18 year old bourbon and I dare someone to prove me wrong in a blind tasting. The profile is towards aged bourbon, in that 10-14 year range (things age slower in the cold). . Tasting notes of decedent caramel and sweet vanilla surround a little spice in the middle of your mouth. It’s mellow, but layers with an oak finish, and some dark berries. It’s akin to an older and more developed Knob Creek select bottle without the nuttiness. It’s delicious bourbon and you can’t take that from me (except by legal definitions 🙄) . While my stance on the labeling is clear, it’s also clear why it’s so good. The details are laid out very intently by people who obviously are targeting bourbon/whisky enthusiasts who want something with age and strength. I think they hit the mark and have given a great example of building the flavor profile of bourbon from the Canadian market. . Thanks to @foundnorthwhisky for sending this bottle. I really enjoyed it. . . . #bourbon #whiskey #whisky #instabourbon #instawhiskey #rye #whiskeypics #whiskeyphotography #whiskeygram #bourbongram #bourbonhunter #whiskeyporn #bourbonporn #cigars #bourbonhunting #bourbonwanderer #whiskeygram #whiskeylover #instabourbon #rarebourbon #allocatedbourbon #bourbonwhiskey #bourbonlife #dadjokes #dadjokesfordays
