94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Distilled in a old-fashioned pot still, Masterson's 10 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey is crafted from 100% rye grown in the verdant Pacific Northwest region. The whiskey is aged in white-oak casks for just over 10 years and then diluted down to 90 proof using pure glacial water from the northern Rockies. The result is a smooth, fragrant spirit offering notes of pepper, vanilla, sweet tobacco, leather and baking spice with underlying notes of caramel, dill and oak. Full-bodied and rich on the palate, sweet, warming notes of cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg are followed by caramel, tobacco and leather, which blend seamlessly into rye spice and cocoa on the long, structured finish.
"The complex aroma suggests rich caramel, maple and butterscotch. The same flavors are echoed on the palate, showing a flash of sweetness, drying alcohol heat and a spicy finish. Water tames this 100% rye to a maple-almond flavor profile, finishing with cocoa and plenty of mouthwatering spice." - Wine Enthusiast
