    Made with rye from the northern United States and Canada—where colder climates reduce the need for herbicides to kill weeds such as wild onions—and using a thicker mash that flows through the column stills more slowly and picks up more flavors, this rare rye whiskey aged in charred-oak barrels from 1984. A portion was bottled at 21 years, another batch at 23. In 2009, at 25 years and 100 proof, the last 38 barrels were finally put into just 3,000 bottles, each bursting with chocolate, toffee, cherry, and citrus, with a long, smooth finish.
