About Barrel no. 752955:  Spent about 4 years and 7 months on the 5 floor of the Rickhouse BE27.  It was next to a window so it saw some of the greatest temp changes available in Central Kentucky. The #4 char on the barrel was able to work the rye white dog into the fine whiskey it is today. 

Wilderness Trail Family Reserve Single Barrel Rye Tasting notes. 

Hits of spice on the front end. However it is by no means over spiced.   The finish is very elegant with notes of dark chocolate on the palate.  This is a Rye that will fool many. Put it in a tasting and wow some friends for most will think this drinks like a great bourbon. This whiskey would be a great whiskey to drink with dessert.
