Have you experienced a whiskey from a three chamber still? If you haven’t we recommend you find a bottle of Leopold Bros.
Our good friend Todd Ritter handed us a bottle of the Leapold Bros Three Chamber Rye to try. Todd is one of our podcast listeners and a member of our private facebook group The Bourbon Roadies.
Leopold Bros. painstakingly re-engineered a Three Chamber Still from old manuscripts and grew the heritage grain Abruzzi rye that was favored by Pre-Prohibition distillers to resurrect this one-of-a-kind whiskey.
We hope you enjoy Jim and Mike’s review. Be sure to catch the podcast episode on your favorite platform, for more information. Cheers!

Appearance: Golden honey rye whiskey in a standard whiskey bottle with the tulip neck.
Nose: Rich honey with herbal chamomile tea and cream that leads to a nice spice. Light fruit that makes it have a pleasant sweetness.
Palate: Oily with that covers honeycomb cereal and spicy ginger snap cookies. The herbal spice with flowers. This covered the mouth with a silky sweetness that reminds us of a cantaloupe. White pepper corn on the back end makes it amazing.
Finish: Extra long with a nice hug.
