We’ve been retaining tabs on Sagamore Spirit, the Baltimore-based rye whiskey producer, since they first hit the cabinets in 2016 with a formidable portfolio of contract-distilled choices. Lately we have been impressed by their bold, and generally uncommon, ending program that provided up surprisingly gratifying oddities like a Calvados Finish and even a Tequila Finish. However these restricted editions have been only a prelude to the largest particular launch but, their first in-house whiskey distilled and aged at their spectacular distillery close to the Baltimore waterfront.

In November, that second arrived with the discharge of this bottle, Sagamore Bottled in Bond. For a model with a mission to revive Maryland’s historic repute as a number one rye whiskey producer, it’s a giant step. As with their contract-distilled whiskeys, this newest is a mix of two totally different rye mashbills, one a high-rye the opposite a lower-rye, meant to emulate the Maryland-style rye that was so standard a century in the past. As a bottled in bond product, it has been aged no less than 4 years. Let’s see how this milestone whiskey acquits itself, we could?

The aroma is daring and spicy with freshly grated cinnamon, peppercorn, and dried herbs. The natural part is delicate with only a little bit of dill creeping in, but it surely provides a pleasant counterpoint to notes of orange peel and tinned pear that give this one a sweeter edge because it opens within the glass. That preliminary spice within the aroma is magnified on the palate with a rush of Pink Hots, candied ginger, and ample baking spice. There’s nonetheless loads of stability right here regardless of the preliminary zing. It’s gentle and a contact oily with layers of brown sugar and citrus drifting out and in of all that spice till issues gently conclude on a warming palate accented by just a little candied cherry and barrel char. Years within the making, and properly well worth the wait.

100 proof.
