Tasting NotesAfter Placing the Oak in the Bottle
Weeks 6 to 8 - Notes of Vanilla
Week 15 to 25 - Notes of Butterscotch, Toffee, or Caramel
After 25 Weeks - Oak Flavor, Smooth . . .
Monterey Rye is created using a "no-cook" traditional sour-mash whiskey method and copper pot still. This process produces flavors that are more natural, resembling the flavor of the rye grain itself.
The "Hand Craft your Flavor" kit puts you in charge of the process and gives you the ability to customize to your own taste preferences. We suggest buying two bottles so as you sip along the way tasting the evolution of flavor, you have a full bottle to enjoy when you reach your desired result.
Insert the piece of American White oak into the bottle.
Let the piece of the barrel mingle inside the bottle, taste weekly.
Once you reach desired taste, remove the oak and enjoy (Responsibly of course!).
