O.H. Ingram River Aged Straight Rye
94 Points “Outstanding”
Soft amber color and smooth aromas of spice. Creamy, layered, and elegant, with sweet, lush flavors of vanilla, oak, treacle, cinnamon, and caramel; long and lovely.

O.H. Ingram River Aged Straight Whiskey
94 Points “Very Smitten”
River-aged barrels are exposed to the drastic rise and fall of the water’s temperatures; the constant friction of the water keeps the vessels in motion, aiding the maturation process for a minimum of three years. This rye-based 96-proofer features aromas of tangerine and butterscotch that lead to a silky palate coated with notes of crème brûlée, papaya, dried apricot, and pine nuts. The long finish brings forth key lime pie and graham cracker crust.
