Thirst for bourbon and rye is driving innovation at distilleries big and small. Here are three spicy new brands to try.
Four Roses Small Batch Select: The first permanent addition to Four Roses’ lineup in 12 years, this 104-proof bourbon mingles six of its 10 recipes and packs a cinnamon punch.
Old Forester Rye: The venerable brand’s first rye, this 100-proof whiskey is one of the best values on the shelf at $23/750ml bottle.
New Riff Kentucky Single Barrel: Each barrel from the Newport distillery will vary, but expect bold, savory character from this high-rye bourbon.
