Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey is a robust young rye whiskey. It has a good amount of new charred oak influence bringing a honey oak flavor to the palet. It also features a dose of black pepper and dill spice. The finish is the hilight of this whisky. At around $45 a bottle, you are paying for the small batch craft nature of this. A better price would put this at around $30-35. There are other options out there at the price point – but it’s definitely worth trying at a bar to experience what an honest young Rye at 45% ABV can taste like.
