Mastersonís is all rye and only rye, meeting the strictest definition of traditional rye whiskey. The rye is grown in the verdant Pacific Northwest, and we choose only rye that exhibits the perfect combination of weight, plumpness and rich, earthy fragrance. These key characteristics, along with our meticulous distillation process, give Mastersonís its uniquely smooth taste.
Wine Enthusiast 94 points - The complex aroma suggests rich caramel, maple and butterscotch. The same flavors are echoed on the palate, showing a flash of sweetness, drying alcohol heat and a spicy finish. Water tames this 100% rye to a maple-almond flavor profile, finishing with cocoa and plenty of mouthwatering spice.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - The nose is full of cedar, baked cherries and orange blossom. Bold and honeyed once in the mouth with a touch of oatmeal, as well. A slightly fruity finish with a hint of smoke. (Mar 2013)
Mastersonís is a 100% rye whiskey that far exceeds industry standards for rye whiskey. Our artisans incorporate only the most fragrant and plump grains of rye and pure glacial water from the northern Rockies into a meticulous distillation process that utilizes an old-fashioned pot still.
