Tasting Notes

We've made no secret of it; we think Black Dirt is simply one of the best new whiskey distilleries in America. The team up there in the Hudson Valley have been farming and making artisanal ciders and spirits for decades and that has given them the patience and foresight not to rush anything and to do things their way. This first release of rye is a three year made from local grains and distilled on their custom Vendome copper still. Bottled at 100 proof the youthful flavors of this lively whiskey are heightened and persistent making it enticing to sit with and linger over or perfect for mixing up in cocktails. This whiskey stays true to its source with well defined flavors of Granny Smith apple, corn husks, cinnamon stick, orange marmalade, apricot and cedar spices. While still young, this is a home run for what it is and we can't wait to see it get older.
