The 2 expressions of Elvis are sourced from two completely different distilleries in numerous states — neither in South Carolina — and are bottled in Tennessee. We’ll speak in regards to the particulars of every in flip.

Each are 90 proof.

Elvis Rye “The King” – 2 yr outdated MGP inventory from Indiana. You need a spicy rye? You bought it: This whiskey is daring and aggressive with ultra-green, grassy notes — nicely peppered and layered with barrel char. Some spice is obvious, but it surely’s stored within the background as these greener notes dominate. On the palate, the whiskey’s youth continues to dominate, once more showcasing a grassy character that’s a minimum of considerably balanced by sweeter notes of butterscotch and vanilla. A mixture of each endures on the end, the peppery rye by no means fading removed from sight and imbuing the end with a specific pungency. All informed, it’s all very acquainted, and whereas it’s completely approachable for a younger rye, it’s nothing that may knock any whiskey fan’s socks off. Would The King have loved this? Actually. Does it change the sport of whiskeydom? Not within the slightest. B / $45 [BUY IT NOW FROM CASKERS] [BUY IT NOW FROM FROOTBAT]

Elvis Whiskey “Tiger Man” – Not marketed as bourbon, that is 2 yr outdated “Tennessee Straight Whiskey” from an unknown distillery. A basic peanut butter — veering nearer to butter pecan — character kicks off the nostril right here, with some rumbling barrel char evident on the nostril. Candy and chewy on the palate, with flavors of roasted peanuts and banana, plus a contact of maple syrup — might there be slightly little bit of Elvis himself creeping into the whiskey? Some baking spice notes, cloves primarily, liven issues up late within the sport, but it surely’s that considerably sugary banana brittle character that is still on level all through. Just like the rye, this can be a youthful and easy whiskey that doesn’t precisely shock the senses — however which doesn’t hurt them, both. B / $45 [BUY IT NOW FROM CASKERS] [BUY IT NOW FROM FROOTBAT]
