Private Reserve Rye, Twice Barreled

Reserved Smooth Flavor

Our private reserve red label, twice aged-rye will is smooth-tasting double-barreled rye that has won multiple awards across the nation.
Nose
The front lines are oak, rye, and baked oats. There are hay, vanilla, and sweet sugar scents lingering behind. With a slight layer of ethanol bringing a significant heat overlay to the nose. The effect makes the nose well balanced, but slightly warm.
Finish
Sweet sugars go through the finishing process and combine each sip with low sparkling heat. Sweet vanilla and oak start and fade into a more dry combo of leathery oak, which lasts a while. It is not your traditional rye finish, but is a slightly weaker experience than nose and palate.
Pallette
Sweet sugars go through the finishing process and combine each sip with low sparkling heat. Sweet vanilla and oak start and fade into a more dry combo of leathery oak, which lasts a while. It is not your traditional rye finish but is a slightly weaker experience than nose and palate.

Our History

Our Red Label Reserved Rye Story

Iowa Legendary Red Label Private Reserve takes a rye’s to an unparalleled level by using our patented 1920s style stills. Then we place this rye into an American white oak barrel that has been charred for a 2-year resting & aging process. This reserve red label rye is then transferred to a second charred American White Oak barrel and aged to perfection.

This second barreling allows the rye to mature an even deeper level of taste. Adding a Fruit-heavy theme with hints of vanilla and caramel, creating a truly authentic prohibition-era rye.
