A Bottled in Bond Kentucky Straight Pure Rye Malt Whiskey Distilled and Bottled by The Pogue Family. An original brand of the H.E. Pogue Distillery founded in 1876, Old Maysville Club in its modern rendition is pure rye in the mash bill, matured for at least 4 years in 53 gallon New Charred American White Oak Barrels and a single barrel bottling at 50% ABV, just as the family formulated over 100 years ago.
Color: Gold with a copper wash. Nose: Toasted pumpernickel bread, with a whiff of mustiness akin to an old grain bin, and a fruity sweet note. Palate: A current of rye spiciness, restrained by a wallop of toasty grain, and a little nibble of dried apricot coming up at the end. Mouthfeel: Thick and oily. Finish: A touch spicy, but overall it is a gentle and lasting experience.
