Sagamore Spirit Straight Rye Whiskey
Located in Baltimore along the Patapsco River, Sagamore Spirit Distillery is continuing the legacy of craft whiskey in Maryland. The state was home to 44 distilleries before Prohibition, including at least 13 in Baltimore, according to Sagamore. They were converted to ethanol plants during World War II, and only a few resumed making whiskey when the war ended. Today, all of Sagamore's whiskies are made with Sagamore Farm spring water.
Aroma: Complex and captivating aromas of warm cinnamon, vanilla bean, honey, and nutmeg. Palate: Smooth mouth-feel, with caramel and molasses up front and peppery baking spices on the end. Rich Color: A fall bonfire glow-amber with gold undertones. Finish: A refreshing and zesty rye spiciness.
