TX Blended Whiskey and TX Straight Bourbon announced the launch of High Rye Texas Straight Bourbon, the second expression in its TX Experimental Series, a line of products rivaling anything TX has created before.
High Rye Texas Straight Bourbon carries a unique mashbill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malt. Each batch of High Rye Bourbon was aged for more than 5 years in American oak 53-gallon barrels. Bottled at a high proof (121.4 proof), High Rye Straight Bourbon gives drinkers the freedom to select their favorite profile by adding or not adding water. Without water the rye spice, stone fruit (apple), and oak aromas are prevalent with plenty of sweetness beneath. If water is added, the rye spice is joined by caramel, brown baking spices, and fig as the dominant aromas.
“Our second experimental release follows our focus on grain and its flavors. This unfiltered High Rye Bourbon (21% rye) release dives into the role of rye as a flavor grain in bourbon, rather than being the sole grain as in the first TX Experimental Series release. While the rye spice shines through, the mellowing character of the corn, and the slight sweet aroma from the malt can be experienced as well,” says Head of Whiskey Science, Ale Ochoa.
Only 1200 bottles of High Rye Texas Straight Bourbon will be available to purchase for $39.99 at Whiskey Ranch through the click & collect program. The limited rye bourbon will only be available in 375ml bottles and limited to two per customer in a 30-day period.
High Rye Texas Straight Bourbon is available starting Friday, June 18.
