Aged 4 years, this straight rye whiskey has a mash bill of 95% rye and 5% barley. This rye dram is truly a craft whiskey coming from private family-owned Willett Distilling Company (also known as Kentucky Bourbon Distillers). Willett Single Barrel whiskeys are selected by Even G. Kulsveen at Kentucky Bourbon Distillers, from distillate from a variety of distilleries, then bottled and sold, often to companies like The Party Source (information provided by “Victor” from Whisky Connosr)
Since this was a sample, I don’t know the batch number. I am however, going to buy a whole bottle, if my source doesn’t run out. So hopefully, there’s going to be some update on this review. A batch number and some comparison between this sample and a whole bottle. I just had to get this review out as quickly as possible. That’s how good this rye whiskey is. A proof, that age doesn’t matter if everything else is in order in the production.
Willet Single Barrel Rye 4YO is a great dram, which comes in small batches – every single batch being true art of whiskey craftsmanship. A proof, that good things usually come in small packages. That’s why this Willett is like the award winning short film Please (starring Gerard Butler). Full of emotion, making you ask for more, going “please!”
