American Whiskey | Rye Whiskey
Cedar Ridge American Malted Rye Whiskey is a mash bill of 51% malted rye, 34% rye, 12% corn, and 3% malted barley. Unlike most rye whiskeys, Cedar Ridge uses malted rye in its mash bill. The rye grains are soaked in water to germinate to malt, then blasted hot air. Malting the rye generates an enzyme that is naturally helpful in the mashing process and adds weight and complex flavors of toast and biscuit to the whiskey.
The nose is so alluring and complex, offering scents of baked apples, honey, roasted almonds, and caramel with accents of clove, allspice, and nutmeg. The palate delivers a lush fruit and caramel core with waves of brown spice, oak, and hints of leather, and black pepper. Medium to full-bodied with a rich fruit core while being vibrant with a bright acidity does provide the perfect balance. This Cedar Ridge Malted Rye has bottled at 43% alcohol by volume. Enjoy!
