How would you celebrate 3 years of podcasting and 250 podcast episodes ?

Well, we talk about whiskey by doing a review on Blackland Distillery rye whiskey and thank our listeners by giving away that same bottle of rye, a bottle of bourbon whiskey and some whiskey swag.

Let’s see what Jim and Mike have to say about this rye whiskey as they celebrate 3 years of  The Bourbon Road.   Be sure to catch the podcast on your favorite platform and listen in for more information.    Cheers!

Tasting Notes: Blackland Rye Whiskey

Vital Stats: Blackland’s proprietary young whiskey is a blend of 80% Texas Rye grain and 20% Triticale, a hybrid of wheat and rye which upon first taste embodies a classic rye spirit, until the creaminess of the wheat cuts into the rye’s spiciness to create a unique flavor profile that defines the modern day rye whiskey. This is bottle was 100 proof and has an MSRP of $35.

Bottle: Beautiful silo shape bottle with dark mahogany rye whiskey.

Nose: Spicy Wethers Original candy and Swedish fish.

Palate: Spicy sweetness hits you right up front that is buttery. Deep caramel with cherries. The Swedish fish is there.

Finish: Lengthy medium with a beautiful Kentucky hug.

Overall: This is a very interesting rye that once again showcases triticale as a beautiful grain. It’s a buy all day long for both of us and we will surely revisit this bottle.
