Leopold Bros. Maryland Style Rye Whiskey (750ml)

SKU #1083757 Whisky Advocate

 Maryland, Monongahela, and, I guess, Modern are the American rye styles. Maryland was a gentler rye, less spicy, and not as hot/sweet as modern rye. This has the dry-grass spice of rye, a hint of cocoa powder, and a bit of funk that blows away to hints of fruit. Light and clean on the palate, some sweetness that rapidly dries out in a grassy, herbal wave. Intriguing, without being overwhelming. (Vol. 22, #4)

The folks at Leopold's are really trying to tell you that theirs is a distinctive take on that category of whiskey. When they say "Maryland", they mean it. I couldn't say how this compares to historical examples of the style, but no matter: I can say for certain that it stands out clearly and distinctly from the general run of Pennsylvania ryes. What you have here is a fiesty but precociously characterful whiskey. The richness stands out for me. Whereas a good many ryes are lean on the palate without extended aging, this already telegraphs weight. The flavors run to dried fruit, flax oil, fresh baked rye bread, leather, dried orange peel, ovaltine, and aged Virginia flake-cut pipe tobacco. Well worth knowing for rye whiskey fans.
