Tasting Notes

The old standard in rye that made a legendary impact on the history of Rye Whiskey in this country before, during and almost single handedly keeping it from outright extinction post Prohibition. As good today as ever and still an excellent value.

Staff Pick Notes

What makes a good American whiskey? Single barrel production? Limited availability? Sherry cask aging? Collectible bottle stoppers? Rhyming with "Happy Stan Crinkle"? HYPE? I don't think whiskey has to be "special" to be good. Drinkability, after all, is in the mouth of the beholder. And sometimes, I just want a Manhattan that won't distract me from my conversation. Or a Sazerac that doesn't have a triple digit proof. Old Overholt is perfect for cocktails that you want to sip with ease. Plus, it's quite the national establishment, boasting over 200 years in production. It's a basic, starter rye in every sense: bright, grassy, and subtly sweet, with a comfy 40% ABV. Sometimes it okay to be basic!
