Sagamore Spirit Reserve Series Sherry Finish Rye Whiskey
Tipxy now features the Sagamore Spirit Reserve Series Sherry Finish Rye Whiskey for only $107.99, with free shipping included. The sherry-finished rye whiskey was first available for a limited time in 2019, when Sagamore Spirit Distillery released it as a distillery exclusive. The limited edition rye whiskey was so elegantly complex with beautiful complementary tasting notes that the distillers at Sagamore Spirit decided to bring the sherry-finished rye whiskey back as a part of the Sagamore Spirit Reserve Series.
Sagamore Spirit Sherry Finish Rye Whiskey: The Process
The Sagamore Spirit Sherry Finish Rye Whiskey starts out as the original Sagamore Spirit 4-year-old straight rye whiskey with a structured oak profile. Then, it goes into 132 gallon PX sherry barrels, where it remains for a year and a half and takes on undertones of dried fruit and honey. The result is a rye whiskey with a 53% ABV and sophisticated tasting profile made up of dried fig, soft spice, cocoa, jam, raisins, honey, toffee, candied orange peel, and velvety toasted almond.
