Prelude to our Manhattan Project: Sweet Vermouth – Woodford Reserve Rye

For those who enjoyed our BTWOE* series** Christopher Rhodovi (from The Whiskey Room) and I return with a prelude to our first Manhattan Project Series – Manhattan Project: Sweet Vermouth (MH:SV). Given in this project we will be tasting both Bourbon and Rye based Manhattans, we felt it only fair to ourselves and all of you to taste the Rye we will be using on its own first. Since the #1 whiskey in our  BTWOE series was Woodford Reserve, we decided to go with the Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey for its companion in our upcoming series.

With strong notes of rye, intermingled with cherry, black & green peppercorns and core tones of vanilla and honey – we both felt this will be an excellent choice/companion to the Woodford Reserve Bourbon for our Manhattan Project: Sweet Vermouth Series.

We encourage you to grab a glass, pour a dram, and join us.

One thought on “Prelude to our Manhattan Project: Sweet Vermouth – Woodford Reserve Rye

  1. Taste is different for me sometimes. I read one review about nail polish and got that and it was strange. But also sometimes I get a lot of bananas which I like but not really what im looking for. Other times I taste caramel and charcoal. Its a love or hate it whisky and it changes for me. The middle is the best part, start and finish is boring. Isn’t complex. Its unique in a way that its not like most bourbons or ryes but in this case its not a + thing. I like it most times but theres a lot more others that I would choose over this when im at the store buying a cheap bottle
