The ultra-premium Hirsch Selection 25 Year-Old KY Straight Rye Whiskey is back in stock here at Lukas Wine & Spirits.
“Aromatic and smooth, this Hirsch Selection Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey was produced using column stills and carefully aged in oak casks in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. With only limited stocks on hand, this exclusive 25 year-old Rye was selected expressly for connoisseurs of small batch fine spirits, and is truly a worthy addition to the illustrious Hirsch Selection hand-picked series of single barrel whiskies.” -per the bottle
The rye grain is renowned in the distilling world for its earthy, spicy flavor that it brings to any spirit, mainly whiskey, but what most people do not know is that rye, much like wheat, can stand the test of time during extra-long maturation periods. That is why you see much of the high-end Pappy and Antique Collection’s mash-bills consisting of larger amounts of rye or wheat to help sustain that long road of maturation whereas corn breaks down and goes south quick after 9+ years.
For the rye whiskey connoisseurs who long for the rare and hard-to-get Sazerac 18 Year, this is easily the best alternative on the market and can pretty much be acquired on a regular basis here at Lukas.
