Lock Stock & Barrel 20 Year Straight Rye Whiskey
Lock Stock & Barrel 20 Year Straight Rye Whiskey is a rare, limited release rye whiskey sourced from the Alberta Distillers Ltd. that was hand-selected by late spirits luminary Robert J. Cooper. It’s made from a rare mash bill of 100% rye grain in copper pot stills and ages in new charred - not toasted - American oak barrels. Because American whiskeys must be aged in new charred oak barrels to be labeled bourbon or rye, they run the risk of becoming over-oaked the longer they’re aged. Lock, Stock & Barrel avoids this result due to the cold climate, 3.5 barrel char, and lack of toasting, providing a rich and robust, yet balanced flavor at 20 years old.
Lock, Stock & Barrel has selected the highest quality barrels of 20-year old rye whiskey available to create an exceptional spirit. They bring this whiskey down to point where consumers can enjoy it as younger or older than its actual age.
Lock Stock & Barrel 20 Year Straight Rye is a luxuriously full bodied rye whiskey that explodes with caramel, clove, and cinnamon like a warm spiced date cake with dried apricot, cantaloupe, and peppery rye. This long and velvety finish lingers with notes of butterscotch and a honeyed rye spice dry down.
