Texas Rye 100 from Balcones Distilling

.44 Rye is a 100% rye whiskey aged in Ranger Creek’s used bourbon barrels. The used barrels produce a more spirit-forward whiskey that allows the flavor of the grain to shine.

The third release in Ranger Creek’s Small Caliber Series is an innovative take on the traditional American whiskey. Rye whiskey has a long history in the United States, which includes George Washington operating the largest distillery of its time. Rye has a distinct flavor that can be diverse and complex. It is often described as spicy or fruity and can manifest as cinnamon, nutmeg, mint, clove or tobacco.
