James E Pepper 1776 Straight Rye Whiskey
Deep amber color. Delicately floral aromas of dried peach, nougat, creme brulee, and pepper with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a buttercream, orange spice cake finish. Rounds out nicely with a few drops of water.
The Pepper family brand of whiskey is an iconic Kentucky & American whiskey brand produced from the American Revolution through 1958. After going out production for decades, it was relaunched by the Georgetown Trading Co. in 2008. A campaign of thorough historical research and collection of historic materials has been ongoing, and have been used to retell the lost story of this iconic American whiskey brand and to distill new stocks of "Pepper" whiskey.
