Looking to connect? I’m on Instagram or you may reach out to me via Email or Discord if you’d like to discuss bourbon, request reviews, or anything else.
This is my second review of the Wiseman series from Kentucky Owl. If you tuned-in for the Whiskey Raiders Podcast episode from January 19th, you’ve heard Jay and I discuss the brand and the products as well.
While the Kentucky Owl bourbon offerings have ranged across the board in terms of price, there haven’t been as many releases on the rye whiskey side of the house, which has me excited to check this one out.
In reading the shelf-talker for the Kentucky Owl Wiseman Rye, the brand says:
“THE WISEMAN™ Straight Rye has a spicy character that instantly fills the mouth with rich rye flavor and tickles the taste buds. It has a long finish starting out as fresh Rye bread, then slowly moving toward buttered cinnamon toast, ending with just hint of English walnut.”
So I have tasted through this product a number of times, and even used as a blending component for a holiday blend I like to make–and in that regard it was really nice. I think this would probably shine in an Manhattan (or other whiskey cocktail) that utilizes orange peel. For now, let’s dig in and rate the Kentucky Owl Wiseman Rye.
