Ranger creek .44 Rye

.44 Rye is a 100% rye whiskey aged in our used bourbon barrels. The used barrels produce a more spirit-forward whiskey that allows the flavor of the grain to shine.

The third release in our Small Caliber Series is an innovative take on the traditional American whiskey. Rye whiskey has a long history in the United States, which includes George Washington operating the largest distillery of its time. Rye has a distinct flavor that can be diverse and complex. It is often described as spicy or fruity and can manifest as cinnamon, nutmeg, mint, clove or tobacco.


Appearance: Rich gold
Nose: Cinnamon, mint and toffee
Taste: Strong and compact with notes of clove and tobacco
Finish: Clean, warming finish with lingering notes of fresh bread crust

The whiskey opens up with two drops of water to amplify the diverse rye flavors.

We recommend enjoying this sipping whiskey neat, on the rocks or in an Old Fashioned.

The finish is spicy with black pepper and cinnamon upfront with some familiar sweet flavors of honey and vanilla. I found this rye to be very smooth and mellow.
