If you enjoy a good whiskey, you probably know about whiskeys such as bourbon, scotch or rye. You may not be aware that there is a new type of whiskey out there that is becoming quite popular. That whiskey is called pre-prohibition rye whiskey. This is a very complex whiskey that is very interesting and unique.
Before the age of prohibition, whiskey was actually made in America, at distilleries. This whiskey is still made from rye, the original recipe from which it is distilled today. This whiskey is still made the old-fashioned way, by hand, making it just as unique as the whiskey it is named after. Distilling is not done in the American style anymore, but the distillation method is exactly the same. It is also the oldest known method, dating back to 1796.
The pre prohibition rye whiskey still retains the mellow flavor that is so popular with consumers. It is not as robust as the bourbon, but the finish is still very rich and earthy tone pre-prohibition style. This rye can be found online and in some liquor stores. This whiskey comes in three different grades, one being a ninety-day proof, another being a ninety-day veto and the last grade is a one hundred and fifty age proof.
There are several different types of pre- Prohibition rye available including a few that are not readily recognized by most consumers. They all have their own distinct characteristics that make them stand out from the rest. With so many varieties available, you can’t go wrong with any of them.
The pre-prohibition rye is aged in barrels that have been specifically designated for this purpose. These types of barrels tend to have a lower rate of impurities, providing a better taste and aroma to the whiskey. The label on the bottle will indicate the exact date that the bottle was “smacked,” hence the name itself. rye also ages in stainless steel barrels that have been treated with copper and zinc to impart a lighter feel and better flavor.
The success of making prohibition rye whiskey relies on the amount of time that the distiller has spent aging it in its special barrels. rye can last for years without aging and will retain the smooth flavor that is so popular with consumers. This is why so many people prefer prohibition-era whiskey over other brands. The history of this type of whiskey and the origins of the distillery that produces it are also very interesting to learn. You can always visit the distillery to taste the whiskey for yourself and discover the true story behind it.
