A blend of Straight Rye Whiskeys finished in rum-seasoned Oloroso Sherry casks
#13 on Whiskey Advocate's Top 20 Whiskies of 2023
"Ernest Hemingway once said, “Never delay kissing a pretty girl, or opening a bottle of whisky.” This rye made in his name is finished in sherry casks that are seasoned with rum, a nod to his drinking days in Cuba. It’s a blend of 6 year old Indiana straight rye and a touch of 4 year old Kentucky straight rye. The result is a rich, complex whiskey with aromas of vanilla frosting and fresh rye grain. The creamy palate serves up flavorful notes of red berries, honeycomb, coffee bean, almond paste, and nougat. A lovely, smooth rye. —David Savona" 94 Points Whiskey Advocate
"Hemingway Rye is built on family traditions. Just as Ernest Hemingway lived a life full of timeless tales worth regaling, the same is true for the Call Family. The men who crafted this First Edition Rye have distilling in their blood, along with stories and lessons passed down for more than 230 years.
Whiskey Pioneer & Founder Steve Groth and his two sons came together with 7th-generation Master Distiller Ron Call and his two sons, Clayton and 8th-generation Master Distiller Jacob, to author a new whiskey masterpiece and continue their legacy with Hemingway Whiskey."
