2022 Single Cask #8: Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Straight Rye Whiskey
We hand-selected this cask from Mountain Laurel Spirits, better known by its flagship brand Dad’s Hat, which has revived Pennsylvania’s historic distilling tradition. The state’s whiskey history dates to the colonial era, but by the 1990s, Pennsylvania rye whiskey had disappeared completely. Dad’s Hat has brought this long tradition back to life, driven by a deep commitment to the state’s history, farmers, and culture.
This straight rye whiskey, our first from Dad’s Hat, was made from a mashbill of 80% rye, 15% malted barley and 5% malted rye and aged in a 53-gallon barrel for 5 years. It is fresh and grassy, with spearmint on the nose and candied orange, chocolate, and clove on the palate.
