I’ve been bopping around between ryes the past few months looking for something to really ignite that daily Manhattan. I’ve tried a bunch but I kept finding myself returning to High West’s Double Rye until I finally chanced upon Leopold Brother’s Maryland Rye. It’s sharp enough to define itself in a cocktail while adding plenty of distinctive rye flavors. The sweetness is there but more than balanced out by the rye which is really what you want from this sort of bottle. Chalk this up to Leopold Brother’s yet again, everything I’ve tasted from their production has been amazing. They say that it’s a limited release so I may have to stock up on a few bottles to tide me over.
