New Riff Distilling "Balboa Rye" Bottle in Bond Kentycky Straight Rye Whiskey



New Riff has done it again. They’ve managed to release yet another whiskey that’s more than deserving of two thumbs up. Balboa Rye is a very well balanced 95% rye whiskey that has a nose, palate and finish that are equally enjoyable. Although the rye spice is very noticeable on this whiskey, there are accompanying clove and nutmeg notes that really add to it. I think this is a fantastic addition to the New Riff portfolio and see this being the perfect bottle to turn quite a few folks into rye whiskey drinkers that previously weren’t into rye whiskey!


Color: Dark Copper/Rust
Nose: The nose is pleasant with hints of red fruit, rye spice, caramel and toffee. This is one of those whiskies you don’t want to stop nosing!
Palate: Rye spice initially coats the mouth followed by fruity notes, and creamy orange citrus flavors. The mouthfeel is very enjoyable with just the right amount of viscosity.
Finish: The finish is somewhere between medium and long with lots of rye spice, clove, and nutmeg. Very enjoyable!
