Now here’s a rye bourbon that is affordable, tastes great and doesn’t disappoint. Rare Breed Rye is bottled at 56.1% abv. It has a msrp of $60 and we purchased our bottle at $55.99.
Nose: caramel, vanilla and toffee
Palate: vanilla, cinnamon, pepper and light honey sweetness
Finish: smooth, wood and sweetness
Personally I really like this rye but, will caution you, if you are expecting it to be mind blowing then expect to be disappointed. This is simply a quality, bold, well made whiskey that to me is affordable. Some may think that this is a high price for bourbon but if you compare this to other rye whiskies out there, the price is very comparable if not better.
It took us a while to find a bottle of this rye and we are definitely not disappointed. If you love Wild Turkey and rye whiskey you can’t go wrong with this one. Great daily drinker IMO. This would also make a great gift for the rye lover in your life.
