Cedar Ridge Straight Malted Rye Whiskey
Lost Lantern hand-selected this cask from the family-owned Cedar Ridge Distillery. It’s only natural that Iowa makes great straight bourbon whiskey – after all, the state grows more corn than anywhere else in the country. The dramatic seasonal temperature swings of The Great Planes help create whiskies with a soft, clean, yet spicy character.
Cedar Ridge is one of the few distilleries that make malted rye whiskey, made with germinated rye grain. This 5-year-old single cask, made with 51% Malted Rye, 34% Rye, 12% Corn, and 3% Malted Barley, shows why the style is worth your attention. It has a citrusy nose, with lemon, custard. And a rich depth on the palate. The malted rye grain adds a complex, biscuity, and toasty flavor and a great mouthfeel.
