Limousin Rye Batch #B14...

Limousin Rye Batch #B14 (46.0%): Although Limousin Rye is distilled from a 100% rye mash bill Dancing Goat Distillery had to label this whiskey as a "whiskey distilled from a rye mash" instead of a "rye whiskey" because of a pretty unique solera system introducing Limousin French oak casks and a mixture of additional ex-rye and new charred American oak barrels used in the aging process. Obviously any solera system or previously used barrels violate the "new oak container" only requirement set by TTB and in this case make Limousin Rye not a "rye whiskey". This handsome sample bottle has been handed to me by Travis Hasse himself who is one of the founders of the Wisconsin based Dancing Goat Distillery at an event here in Los Angeles and carries the batch number B14.
Color: Yellow gold with thin but slow legs.
Nose: A little spirity and grainy... Young alcohol, lemon curd and dried apricots. Cigarette smoke, more like an ashtray and star anise. Roast…
