I am digging finished ryes lately, and the release of Hemingway Rye Signature Edition (Not to be confused with Hemingway Rye 1st Edition) is another excellent non-distiller producer tasting experience with a bottle design that is a work of art.
This 102-proof Hemingway Rye Signature Edition blends two straight rye whiskeys finished in rum-seasoned Oloroso Sherry Casks. 90% of the blend is 6-year-old Indiana Straight Rye Whiskey (95% Rye and 5% Malted Barley), and the remaining 10% is 4-year-old Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey (95% Rye and 5% Malted Barley).
Seven and eight-year-old rye is the sweet spot for non-finished ryes. For finished ryes like Hemingway, six years is the beginning of the sweet spot for ryes, in my experience.
