Mad River Distillers Revolution Rye Whiskey
For Revolution Rye, the mash bill is 100 percent rye (similar to the Canadian rye whiskey used by a few different brands). Interestingly, the Revolution Rye mash bill uses three types of rye grain, including a chocolate malted rye. A portion of the rye is toasted, which Mad River claims releases aromatic chocolate and mocha notes into the distillate.
Mad River Distillers Revolution Rye Whiskey Tasting Notes
Nose: Out of a Glencairn glass, the nose has very strong hay and cereal grain notes. Underneath the almost overpowering grassy notes, faint cocoa notes that the toasted rye allegedly adds.
Palate: On the front, the cereal grain notes carry over from the nose. As the flavor unfolds, the cocoa notes make a brief appearance but are pretty quickly overpowered by bitter grassy notes.
Finish: The finish is grassy, dry, bitter, and unfortunately lingering.
