    On December 5th 2011 - the 78th anniversary of Prohibition’s repeal in America - the New York Distilling Company opened its doors in Brooklyn. Founded by cocktail and spirits expert Allen Katz and Tom Potter - a co-founder of the Brooklyn Brewery - NYDC aim to make spirits embodying the cocktail and drinking culture of New York through the years.

    As well as a range of gins and vodkas, NYDC also produce a range of whiskies branded 'Ragtime Rye' - rye whiskey and ragtime music were synonymous in the early 20th Century, and the team produce whiskies hoping to evoke that era by using rye grown only in New York State.

    A limited edition release bottled in single barrel batches at cask strength, Jaywalk Heirloom Rye is comprised of 75% Horton Rye, an heirloom rye varietal not commercially grown since the 1800s, along with 13% New York corn and 12% malted barley.

    This is, quite simply, one of the best rye whiskies I have ever encountered. The depth and complexity of flavour knows no bound, with toasted sourdough, salted butter, charred dark fruits, vanilla cream, cinnamon, nutmeg, peppermint all dancing on the palate. It doesn't even need water, with the incredible flavour profile not being masked by the higher ABV.

    Honestly, you can scratch around for the likes of Blantons or Weller for the same price - if not considerably higher in some places! - and yet this is arguably even better.
