Buzzard’s Roost Whiskey Introduces New Smoked Barrel Rye

Buzzard’s Roost Whiskey introduces new Smoked Barrel Rye, featuring the complex flavor profile for which Buzzard’s Roost is known, enhanced with a subtle, smoky note.

Jason Brauner, co-founder and master blender for Buzzard’s Roost, says, “Our Smoked Barrel Rye shows how Buzzard’s Roost redefines what maturation means to whiskey. Our barrels are our ‘spice rack,’ bringing complex aromas and flavors to each of our whiskeys.”

Buzzard’s Roost Smoked Barrel Rye offers cinnamon, cardamom and banana bread on the nose, layered over vanilla and caramel notes. On the palate, sweet candied orange, vanilla, caramel and baking spices are balanced with warm campfire note that makes this a winter whiskey for sipping neat or in a cocktail.

Buzzard’s Roost Smoked Barrel Rye is a four-year-old sourced whiskey that was double-barreled into new American oak barrels that were toasted and then lightly smoked. The mash bill is 95% rye and 5% malted barley. This 105-proof (52.5% ABV) rye has an SRP of $70 per 750 ml bottle.
