McKenzie Rye Whiskey is made from local rye grain and is distilled using old-time techniques. We age this whiskey in new charred oak casks and finish in sherry barrels from local wineries. The sherry balances the spiciness of the rye and also gives a nod to the wine region where this whiskey is produced.

I live in Upstate New York and have been to MCKenzie. I like the Rye. The one I get locally is a straight rye ( i.e., 2 yrs old) and assume this is as well. There are better, but this is a good one to have on hand if you are low on your fav or have guests.
