Volume One of the Rye Project is a collaboration between Willett Family Estate and Wolves Whiskey. The Volume One blend consists of a very low rye (51%) whiskey aged for 6 years in new American oak, blended with a more aggressive 6 and 7 year Rye (74%) whiskey distilled by the Willett Distillery.
On the nose, notes of oak, vanilla, pepper, dried fruit, butterscotch, copper, floral and spice. On the palate, oak, dried dark fruit, vanilla, butterscotch, angel food cake and an oily mouthfeel. The finish is medium short with notes of warm vanilla and rising spice.
