Grain & Barrel Spirits, the corporate behind the Hen Cock model’s revival, continues to push the model upmarket, releasing restricted expressions of all types of (sourced) whiskeys, revolving round bourbon and rye. This newest expression is a doozy: A 20 12 months outdated Canadian rye named in honor of Harlem’s Cotton Membership, the place the unique Hen Cock was the home whiskey again within the Twenties and ’30s.

Let’s give this rarity — with 9570 bottles produced — a whirl.

The nostril has that traditional Canadian softness, all butterscotch and marzipan, with layers of baked apple and overripe banana. A bit doughy and super-sweet with cotton sweet notes, it feels prefer it’s going to be a sugar bomb when it hits the tongue. Excellent news: The whiskey is kind of candy, but it surely has lots extra happening to maintain the sugar in examine. Vital notes of almond extract and butter pecan ice cream mood a sugar cookie dough core, fruitier notes constructing beneath. The end is heavy with notes of recent apple fritters, a only a contact of natural greenery, and a lingering brown sugar observe that adheres to the tongue for fairly a while. Its inherent sweetness could stop it from being a whiskey that works completely for everybody — and I can absolutely perceive those that would possibly shrink back, notably at this worth — however in the event you give in to the dessert facet of issues, it’s a rye that I’m assured will win most drinkers over.

100 proof.
