Pendleton Whisky just announced the launch of Pendleton 1910, a 12-year old 100% Canadian rye whiskey. We reviewed Pendleton’s Blended Canadian Whisky last year with lukewarm results, but we’re always intrigued by rye whiskeys, especially of the 100% rye variety.
From the company –
Featuring round, rich notes of tobacco, charred oak and butterscotch with a spicy rye kick and peppery heat, Pendleton 1910 Rye Whisky is rounded out by the smoothness of maple and sweet cherry to provide a weighty and balanced, yet complex, flavor profile.
The Pendleton 1910 name pays homage to the year of the first-ever Pendleton Round-Up and comes packaged in an iconic 750ml bottle with unique and intricately embossed detailing reminiscent of tooling on a saddle and features the famous Pendleton Round-Up bucking horse.
Following release in Oregon, national distribution of Pendleton 1910 will begin in October. Limited quantities will be available annually and will sell for approximately $39.95 per 750ml bottle.
