Bull Moose Three Barrel Rye Whisky
Rough Rider Bull Moose Three Barrel Rye Whisky spends a bit of time maturing in three different specially selected casks that impart distinctive character along the way. The journey begins in New American Oak casks where the Rye Whisky takes shape with its resolute spicy sweet cinnamon flavors. When the time is right, the Rye Whisky is moved to casks that had just held Straight Bourbon, where the flavors of the Rye and Bourbon get to know each other better.
When the Rye is done mingling with the Bourbon flavors, it is then moved to its final cask which had just held Pine Barrens Single Malt Whisky. This unique Three Barrel aging method provides Rough Rider Rye with a crisp fruity sweetness on the nose, followed by spice, caramel, vanilla and blackberry on the palate, lauded by a royal symphony of long, warm rye-ness, with a toasty, velvety finish.
Hand Crafted and Aged in three types of casks:
New American Oak casks
Pine Barrens Casks
Where did the name of the Rye come from?
Teddy Roosevelt, native Long Islander, organized the United States First Voluntary Cavalry, commonly known as the Rough Riders, in 1898. The group was composed of 1,250 men from across the country, including cowboys, Indians, and other Wild West types, as well as Ivy League athletes and aristocratic sportsmen from the East. This disparate group shared a common purpose; the pursuit of adventure, independence, and excellence. Despite winning the Battle of San Juan Hill, the Rough Riders disbanded in Montauk Point after only 137 days of service. In 1912, Teddy Roosevelt formed the Progressive Party, which soon became known as the Bull Moose Party. Legend has it that after surviving assassination attempt that same year, Teddy boasted, “It takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose.” Rough Rider Bull Moose Three Barrel Rye Whisky captures that pioneering boldness.
