93 points and 'Top 100 Spirits 2019,' Wine Enthusiast: "A honey hue and rich vanilla aroma mark this six-year-old rye whiskey. The palate nods to its 100% rye grain mash bill, opening with brisk cinnamon and allspice sparks that round into mellower vanilla and caramel midpalate, finishing long and spiced. Adding water brings more vanilla to the fore and adds a toasted grain note to the finish. (Dec 2019)"

This stunning 100% rye is one of the final expressions created by late Master Distiller and whiskey luminary Dave Pickerell. His dream was to create the best aged Rye Whiskey perfect for any rye cocktail. PiggyBack has an intensely powerful, spicy profile, imparted by its time in oak barrels. You can expect complex and smooth notes that shine through, yet don’t overpower your drink. Fresh cinnamon,cinnamon, freshly ground black pepper and subtle citrus and grapefruit zest on the nose. The palate is powerfully spicy with accents of cocoa, cardamom and treated leather. The finish is intense and lingering with notes of vanilla, citrus and baking spice.
