Leopold Bros. Maryland-Style Rye

This mash bill is around 65 percent rye, 20 percent malted barley and 15 percent corn — compared to Pennsylvania rye, which is typically rough, 95 percent rye and meant to shoot. Maryland Rye must come from Maryland, but Maryland-style rye may come from other areas like Denver, Colorado, the home of Leopold Bros. Distillery. Their ode to elegance does not disappoint. It starts with a rich, amber-brown glistening liquid in the glass. The nose is reminiscent of a cinnamon-flavored root beer and vanilla ice cream float. The palate is equally exciting as it adds a delightful texture unique to the rye component, coupled with a light, raspberry, California brittle flavor along with a smooth, chocolaty, slightly spicy finish. This unique rye, which averages four years old, is a treat for the whiskey enthusiast.

Price: $62
