Cody Road makes a very fine rye. It’s got a nice rye spiciness, without being harsh at all, and a bit of bourbon sweetness as well (even though the grain bill is 95% rye, 5% barley, according to the label.
Today I served in neat in one of my whiskey peaks glasses. There are several versions of these glasses, with different mountains in the base of the glass. Mine have Mt. Fuji. The shape works great for aerating the whiskey when you swirl it in the glass.
For the past few days I’ve been drinking bourbon and branch water (i.e. tap water from the Mahamet aquifer). Today though @jackieLbrewer wanted her manhattan with @mrivrdistilling’s Cody Road rye. It’s so yummy I’m drinking it neat.
