French Romance 14 1/2 year-old Northern Rye (released Nov 2020)
After identifying this specific barrel, Tippins had us transfer it into a once-used Weller barrel for two years before finishing in a French oak Bordeaux barrel from Château Les Croix in the summer of 2020. The color is an incredible crimson radiant amber, with a beyond-remarkable aroma of delicate fresh crushed raspberries black currents and blackberries. This is a non-chill filtered single barrel yielded only 98 bottles after the third barreling, which were finished at cask strength (125 proof). Dom suggests adding a couple drops of water to round out the red berry fruit and take out some of the heat to expose the delicate structure of this whiskey. The mouthfeel is almost jam-like, even at 125 proof. Thick layers of red berry, black currant and blackberry just hang in almost a sticky consistency along with all the beautiful characteristics of the Mammoth Northern Rye, earthy rustic forest floor and spice.
