Pikesville Straight Kentucky Rye (750ml) (Previously $50) (Previously $50)
Top Pick!
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Look for a rich caramel-maple aroma and spice-forward flavor profile, showing allspice and clove, with a layer of vanilla underneath. Dilution tames this rye to show more vanilla, accented with dry touches of oak, leather and cocoa. Aged at least six years. Sip or mix. (KN)" (07/2016) Whisky Advocate: "Heaven Hill’s 80-proof standard Pikesville is a summer favorite, so I was eager to try this. A woody depth to it at 6 years old: 110 proof-hot, stewed plum and horehound candy, and sizzling rye spice behind it. It's a jawbreak...

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "A versatile must-have for mixing cocktails, look for pleasing vanilla, maple and a hint of dried cherry. The finish is long and drying, with plenty of baking spice notes. (KN)" (07/2016) Whisky Advocate: "Rittenhouse packs lots of corn, offering a different profile than those higher-rye whiskeys from Indiana. Straight from the glass burst caramel, campfire smoke, and vanilla, with hints of dill weed and Herbs de Provence. Ripe in flavor, it shows slight mint from the rye and a complex voyage of herbs with a touch of chocolat...

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This full-bodied blended whisky hits all the right notes, starting with plenty of rich caramel and oak tones on the nose and palate, plus touches of butterscotch, spicy cinnamon and clove. It finishes long, slightly oily and mouthfilling. Sip it straight or add a splash of sweet vermouth. (KN)" (11/2015) 94 points Whisky Advocate: " Corby’s latest Lot 40, this one undated, comes from the same distillation batch as the 2012 release, but with a couple of extra years in wood. The familiar flavors are all there: dustiness, sour...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The aroma entices with bold caramel and vanilla. The palate is brisk and relatively dry, despite the succulent aroma, showing vanilla and oak up front, and rounding into nutmeg, almond, vanilla and bitter orange on the finish. Versatile for cocktails, including its namesake Sazerac. *Best Buy* (KN)" (07/2016) K&L Notes: The Sazerac cocktail: 1/2 oz absinthe, 2 oz Sazerac Straight Rye, 1/2 oz simple syrup, 2 dashes of Peychaud bitters. Fill an old fashioned glass with ice. Add the absinthe to the glass. Combine all other in a...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a 100% rye whiskey made with Washington state grain. Look for a tawny hue and distinctly fruity scent layered with a wash of vanilla. The bracing, lean palate shows plenty of vanilla and caramel up front plus a hint of espresso, sparked with fiery cayenne and hot cinnamon on the drying fade. A splash of water coaxes out a pleasing nuttiness and tones down the spicy heat. (KN)" (11/2018) K&L Notes: Woodinville is a Washington state whiskey company established in 2010.

After a few years of deep consideration and personal reflection we committed ourselves to crafting the world’s finest and most interesting Rye Whiskeys.

Check out our first barrels under the new Hotaling brand instead of the old Anchor brand! Again, we've selected a pair of casks that showcase two different sides of Hotaling's flavor spectrum.

Wild Turkey "Master's Keep - Cornerstone" Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)
Back In Stock!
93 points Whisky Advocate: " A delightfully complex nose of vanilla, hot cross buns and bakery shop, cherries, coconut, raisins, figs, licorice, old leather, and hay barn. A smooth, viscous palate offers lemon honey, fragrant oak, cigar ash, dark berries, and more coconut. Spicier notes emerge with water, while the finish offers rich smoothness, with spiciness, chocolate-covered coconut, tobacco, and bitter herbs. Lots of depth and complexity. A great whiskey to enjoy with a cigar. (DF, Fall 2019)" K&L Notes: Cornerstone is the oldest rye ever released...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A honey hue and rich vanilla aroma mark this six-year-old rye whiskey. The palate nods to its 100% rye grain mash bill, opening with brisk cinnamon and allspice sparks that round into mellower vanilla and caramel midpalate, finishing long and spiced. Adding water brings more vanilla to the fore and adds a toasted grain note to the finish. (KN)" (09/2019)

When you think about Utah you probably think about great skiing, stunning National Parks, maybe great mountain biking. But did you know that Utah also cast the deciding vote that ended Prohibition? This barrel aged Manhattan, made from two parts High West Double Rye whiskey, one part sweet red vermouth and two dashes of Angostura bitters (per every 2.5 ounce serving), was all left to rest for 120 days in a two-year-old rye whiskey barrel. The results are stunning, harmonious and a great homage to that key vote, the 36th Vote, that allows us to freely enj...

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "On the smoother, sweeter side of the rye spectrum, this whiskey offers a restrained aroma that mixes vanilla and oak and luxe, bold flavors that resound with -cigar wrapper, leather, toffee and cocoa. The long finish is perked up by a fleeting cut-apple freshness, marked by allspice and clove. Cocktail friendly. Made in Indiana, bottled in Connecticut. *Top 25 Spirits of 2016 & Best Buy* (KN)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: Here we have the venerated Tennessee distillery, dipping its toes into the hot-as-coal rye whiskey market.

This delicious pre-made cocktail uses high quality aged rye mixed with raw honey, navel orange peel, rock candy and bitters. High proof and not overly sugary, this is the perfect choice for cocktails on the fly. You can store them cold, but we love these on the rocks. A staff favorite.

Wine Enthusiast: "Made with 100% Merced rye, a varietal that grows well in cool climates, and aged about three years, look for mild vanilla and orange peel aromas. The drying palate leads with oak, spice and vanilla and finishing with fiery clove, a tease of nutmeg and a whiff of campfire smoke. (KN)" (07/2016) K&L Notes: Corbin is a farm located in Atwater, California (just south of Modesto) that grows sweet potatoes.

The little Oakland, CA based distillery of Wright & Brown is putting out some fantastic juice. Made from malted rye and barley this cask strength version is big and intense.

Since Tom and Lianne Herbruck founded Tom's Foolery distillery in northern Ohio in 2008, their products have become benchmarks in the ever expanding world of craft whiskey and brandy. The rye might be their most exciting offering. This single barrel #150 was distilled in February 2013 from 70% winter rye and 30% malted rye. The barrel was bottled in bond in October 2018 at 100 proof. It represents a nearly lost style of rye, more intense than most modern rye, with tons of minty green complexity, grassy dried herbs and spicy black pepper. While the powerf...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This honey-hued rye has a remarkable aroma, melding cookie dough, hazelnut and marzipan. The same luscious flavors show up on the palate, rich and sweet, leading into a confected finish of Nutella sprinkled with nutmeg and cinnamon. The sugar-and-spice effect is due to 18 months finishing time in casks that first held Cognac, then Caribbean rum. *Top 50 Spirits 2013* (KN)" (07/2013) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "The folks at Angel’s Envy once again push the envelope with this 95% rye whiskey finished in Caribbean rum casks.

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Billed as 'the spiciest rye whiskey anywhere,' this is a blend of two rye whiskeys, both a minimum of two years old, sourced from multiple distilleries. The 2018 bottling has a mild, honeyed scent, while the palate surprises with vanilla custard contrasted by traces of smoke, eucalyptus and cigar wrapper. As promised, the long finish explodes with a spicy burst—but don’t worry, it’s not too extreme to sip.

While Whistle Pig labels their single-barrel program with the same 10-year rye label they use on their flagship bottling, the fact is these barrels are much, much older. Just shy of 14 years, this cask-strength beauty offers one of the best deals in the Whistle Pig warehouse. Distilled from the same source as their flagship rye (Alberta) this barrel offers tons of sweet spice and tangy rye character.

According to the distillery, this 18-year-old whiskey is double distilled from a mash bill of 100% rye grain. "A 'robust cut' is selected by master distillers, then the unfiltered spirit is aged in new charred American Oak barrels in cold weather. Lock Stock & Barrel 18-year is explosively flavorful and intense, yet perfectly balanced with notes that suggest hot, buttered gingerbread, dried peach, toasted pecan, ripe honeydew and tobacco leaf."

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Strong but intriguing. Medium color and body, with rich aromas of burnt orange and caramel. The flavors also reflected burnt orange and caramel, plus a spicy tinge reminiscent of cassia bark or Red-Hot candies. The finish lingers, pleasant, inviting and warm. Might be good for Manhattans--a touch of fruit or sweetness would go well with this rye. Excellent value.

One of the more interesting and intriguing independent bottlings of bourbon since Black Maple Hill went out of production, Lost Republic whiskey is made of three different bourbons from three different states: Indiana, Tennessee and California. Matt Weese and his team in Healdsburg are contracting spirits and aging the barrels separately in their Napa warehouse, using them to create a fruity, grainy and gritty style of American whiskey. The fruity, young whiskey aromas are potent on the nose, but the woody, vanilla notes balance out the youth on the pala...

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Attention wine lovers: this fab bottling with the cowboy label is made with a blend of straight rye whiskies finished in two wine casks, formerly holding vermouth and Syrah. The result is a deep ruddy amber hue and a strikingly concentrated flavor profile. Look for warming layers of caramel, toffee and espresso, drying to leather, zingy orange peel and spice. Sip or mix into Manhattans or any drink including sweet vermouth. (KN)" (07/2016) Whisky Advocate: "This blend of straight ryes finished in vermouth and syrah barrels n...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aged two and a half years in lightly toasted barrels, this light amber whiskey offers an oaky nose and palate. The oak doesn't overshadow the flavor nuances, which morph from orchard fruit and pineapple to roasted grain, to a finish tinged with coffee and cardamom. (KN)" (01/2017) K&L Notes: The fascinating spirit represents Anchor Brewing Company's attempt to re-create the original whiskey of America.

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Look for bold vanilla aroma, a drying feel and loads of vanilla, brown sugar and even touches of butterscotch on the exceedingly long finish. It's surprisingly smooth for a 101-proof product, although the alcohol indeed makes its presence known. It stands up well to dilution, which blunts the alcohol edge and coaxes out more vanilla. *Best Buy* (KN)" (07/2015) Whisky Advocate: "Sweet bread pudding and cracked pepper are tinged with wintergreen and earthy oak, the alcohol strikes just a touch sharp.

Whisky Advocate: "Big mint/grass nose with sweet grain and a touch of vanilla behind it. Fiery, slippery with rye oiliness, popping with that mint, and rye-bitter on the finish; a bit of a bully. That's not all bad, though; too many ryes strive to be smooth these days, but this lets it rock, and does it well. A chunk of ice doesn't hurt this at all. Potent, bold. Sourced whiskey.

0-91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Perfect for classic cocktails, this golden-amber rye invites with lots of vanilla on the nose and palate, plus mouthwatering notes of pear, cinnamon and black pepper. (KN)" (07/2013) K&L Notes: The most talked about little rye is finally available to the general public. This is a spice monster! It almost feels like they've steeped it in spices after distillation. Big, rich, clove, cinnamon, very intense, very delicious. Now available online after months of in-store only! Distilled in Indiana.

Whisky Advocate: "Rose petal and grapefruit meet clove-like spice, but it’s the soapy floral sachet and dill notes that distinguish this rye. While it seems somewhat young, the generous cinnamon candies, spiced cherry, and red berry fruit pour lively and vibrant, with drying tannins, peppery spice, and green apple on the finish.

It starts off innocuously with a maple-syrup color, and a pretty, complex and subtle scent: honey, vanilla, a slight medicinal tinge and faint clover notes. It feels silky on the tongue and at first, the flavors reflect caramel, burnt orange and a whisper of smoke, but then a mouth-warming wave of tannic bite sweeps over all and lingers for a good long time. Straight up or on the rocks. (KN)" (11/2010) Whisky Advocate: "Imported from Canada (which s...

Whisky Advocate: "The old Beam rye never got a lot of respect from aficionados. It’s been pulled, reformulated, and repackaged. Let’s try it. Smell: sweet grass and pepper. Taste: hot, flashy, sweet on top, with rye oiliness underneath, a tickling bitterness that blends well with oak into the finish. The higher proof plays well, giving this a punch of flavor the old yellow label didn’t have, and at a good price. It’s Manhattan time! Value Pick. (Summer 2015) " K&L Notes: The beast is awakening!
