Jefferson's Straight Rye Whiskey 10 Year Old
"A 100% straight rye from Canada. This is curiously similar to (and more affordable than) WhistlePig rye, which is also a 100% rye, 10 year old Canadian whisky, but at a slightly higher 50% ABV. (Neither whiskey identifies its origin.) It oozes spice (mint, cinnamon, hint of nutmeg) balanced by layers of sweetness (honeyed vanilla, caramel), with nutty toffee emerging on the finish."

Jefferson's Rye: The newest addition to the Jefferson's line, Jefferson's Rye is made with 10 year old North American Straight Rye Whiskey. It offers a fantastic combination of age, purity and strength. Jefferson's Rye features a full body with classic caramel and vanilla flavors and a mid-palate spiciness that is slightly tempered by notes of dark chocolate.
Using a bold, spicy 100% rye whiskey gives this classic Manhattan extra bite. Trey Zoeller, founder and master blender of Jefferson's Bourbon creates a version of the Manhattan that calls for an extra half-ounce of whiskey since "I like my Manhattans filled to the rim," he says.
