The Rye Flight | Available all July | $65
While there are only two main types of Rye Whiskey to note – American Rye and Canadian Rye – all rye whiskeys must contain a minimum of 51% rye grain in the mash bill. Because of the spicier, drier notes that a rye whiskey produces, it is uncommon to find a whiskey of 95-100% rye. NOLA’s rye flight is all about tasting the various distinctive flavours that different rye content and age brings out. The four rye whiskeys included in this flight are: Pikesville Rye, Koval Rye, Whistlepig 10yo Rye and Willet Straight Rye. No bookings required, just request at the bar.
