Both delicious, probably due to the bottler. |
1. You have two distinct SKUs. Straight Rye Whiskey and 18th Century. Theyíre exactly the same mash bill (100% Malted Rye) but different barrel chars and aging profiles.
- SRW is in a standard bourbon barrel. 53 gallon # 4 char aged at least 4.5 years. What I canít see is the proof. Yours looks potentially handwritten? 97 proof is standard SRW. Anything higher would be a single barrel release.
- 18th century is the same mashbill but in a toasted rather than charred barrel. And itís slightly higher proof. Itís supposed to be a homage to early American whiskies. Pre-bourbon, pre-corn from the colonies. Think Pennsylvania, Maryland, anywhere colder than corn growing climates.
- Your essay numbers are Q and S respectively. The 17th and 19th bottling of each expression respectively.
- Your 18th century isnít a low fill. In about 2015 or so we switched bottle suppliers from Vetri Speciale to O-I. The 18th is Italian glass. The SRW is Columbian. Theyíre similar but the shoulder is different, impacting the fill height.
- Finally, I bottled both.
