Bare Knuckle American Rye Whiskey. Image courtesy KO Distilling.Virginia’s KO Distilling makes this whiskey from 100% locally grown rye and matures it for at least 18 months. The nose is spicy and aromatic with clove, black pepper, allspice, and a hint of ginger, while honey and vanilla notes provide balance. The taste is spicy and intense with clove, allspice, and black pepper balanced by a hint of caramel cola, cherries, anise, and a touch of licorice in the background. The anise and licorice notes balance the lingering spices on the finish. (August, 2018)
