Yellow Rose Rye Whiskey Review

yellow rose rye whiskey

Yellow Rose Distilling hails from Houston, where they’ve been making whiskey since 2010. The company is currently putting out three spirits–Outlaw Bourbon, a Blended Whiskey and this, the Yellow Rose Straight Rye Whiskey.

The juice itself is sourced from a handful of undisclosed distilleries around the country. Then once procured, it’s blended and bottled at their Houston facility. And like many ryes these days, it sports that popular 95% rye mashbill.

Yellow Rose Rye pours a copper-amber color in the glass and has aromas of vanilla, brown sugar and oak. Take a sip, and things maintain a solid balance between sweet (vanilla, maple) and spice, and the whole thing’s accented with a measured dose of cooling mint and floral honey notes. It finishes smooth and easy, with mild pepper and dry oak lingering until the end.

This is good rye and a solid choice for sipping neat, if that’s your thing. But if you’d rather mix it–and rye whiskeys are certainly a good candidate for that–we can confirm that it makes a fine Old Fashioned.

Yellow Rose whiskeys are available in about a dozen states, including Texas, Colorado, Washington, Florida and Massachusetts.
