OHLQ Announces Sagamore Spirit Barrel Select Rye Whiskey Release - Coming Week of April 24th

The Ohio Department of Liquor (OHLQ) has announced the availability of four barrels worth of Barrel Select Rye Whiskey arriving at select stores the week of April 24th for $59.99 + tax. This is aged 7 years and is a mixture of their single barrel 95% high rye mash bill and their 52% mid-rye mash bill. 

These bottles come in at 110 proof (55% alcohol). The four barrel selections are:
  • Barrel #089 - This “cigar” style rye sings with notes of juicy, dark fruits.
  • Barrel #121 - Notes of sweetness deliver a satisfying flavor with a bright, medium body.
  • Barrel #126 - A salty, buttery flavor with notes of brown sugar blooms on the palate and resonates with oak.
  • Barrel #146 - A toasted flavor with notes of cinnamon bread opens up to light, subtly sweet oak.

You can use this site to try to track down a bottle. Note that inventory will be made available on a daily basis as locations receive their shipments.

My Take

Up until this moment, I didn't know Sagamore Spirit existed, but at $60 for a 7 year single barrel, that's a great price to give them a go. I would have liked to see this be a single mash bill rather than a mixture, but I'll trust their expertise. I think if you see this out and about and are looking to give something a try, I'd recommend picking up a bottle.
