GSN Review: Cascade Moon 13 Year Old Rye

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++
