Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. General Manager and Distiller Nicole Austin recently released Cascade Moon 13 Year Old Rye, an extremely rare release, available in select U.S. markets. Hand-selected by Austin, this Cascade Moon release complements the series by offering a rye addition to the lineup. The barrels containing aging rye arrived at Cascade Hollow in 2012, where they spent nearly a decade in Cascade Hollow’s single-story rickhouses.
The debut of Cascade Moon 13 Year Old Rye comes off the heels of two award-winning Cascade Moon variants released at the end of 2020 in celebration of the 150-year anniversary of George A. Dickel & Co.
GSN’s Remarks: The nose effuses fresh baked rye bread married to a sweet, yet char driven element. Wonderfully evocative and luscious. On the tongue, the spirit is sweeter than expectations, giving notes of toffee, vanilla and caramel creams all patinaed by a slight burnt toast edge. The bitterness of the grain and the barrel keeps the focus on the peppery rye. Rye whiskey is always a treat, but when it deleivers as well as this one does, it becomes an experience. Grab a bottle if you can. Highly recommended. GSN Rating: A++
