FEW Rye Single Barrel #17-2723 Antipodes


Quantity limited to 1 bottle.

Few is located in Chicago, Illinois and was founded in 2008 by Paul Hletko. The first distillery to produce a grainbased spirit in the State since the end of Prohibition (1933), it is very much part of the craft movement which has, over recent years, broken up the established order in the world of American whiskey. Produced with 70% rye, 20% maize and 10% malted barley, this version gives orange the leading role. Also chocolatey and nobly woody, it beams with tranquillity and well-being.

Tasting Notes

Colour :
Orangey copper.

Nose : Rich, deep. On the first nose, oranges spread their sweet and tangy juice throughout the aroma palette. Allowed to breathe, incense, beeswax and nutmeg shatter the first nose. Oranges—this time blood oranges—take us to intensely citrus lands. These are accompanied by delicious notes of rye coated in a fine layer of liquorice, pine resin and lime blossom honey.

Palate : Taut, lively. The earthy and rooty (ginseng) attack then reveals delicious flavours of blood orange. The more herbaceous mid-palate (absinthe, verveine du Velay) highlights the qualities of a very noble wood which acts as the backbone of the flavour palette. At the end of the palate, dried fruit and nuts (almond, sweet chestnut, date) punctuate the second stage of the tasting.

Finish : Long, serene. At the start of the finish, ground spices (black pepper, nutmeg, grated ginger, cinnamon) and cocoa powder interlace harmoniously with extremely concentrated and heady floral flavours (old rose, gillyflower, carnation). At the end of the finish, infusions of thyme and green tea leaves refresh the palate. The retronasal olfaction wavers between notes of rye, chocolate, dried apricot and leather. In addition to the orange, the empty glass recreates the fragrances of Mirabelle plum, peach and precious wood.
