The only 100% aged rye. Most people stop at 95%, even getting there presents problems according to Master Distiller Dave Pickerell Rye is the brat of whiskey grains -The higher the percent rye you get, the worse it behaves. It gets sticky. It foams. The fiber becomes a nuisance, the hassle of going from 95 % to 100% is unbelievable. But I wanted to be involved in that because rye whiskey is about taste. It�s about full-bodied, unadulterated taste.
