Old Hunter's Selection Rye Whisky

It was over 500 years ago, in 1518 when the history behind Old Hunter's Reserve Rye Whisky started. This whisky is created in Czechia at the Palírna U Zeleného stromu (The Green Tree Distillery). This is the oldest distillery in Europe. Certainly a great start for a whisky.

Their Old Hunter's Rye is a unique Czech whisky which is aged in American White oak barrels. This ageing is done in the cellars of Prostějov 5 metres underground, where their Blend Master (Roman Petruš) oversees the distillates. The total ageing process of the Selection edition is 7 years.

The first four years of ageing, along with their original recipe (which has remained a secret for centuries) ensures the whisky acquires a delicate and harmonious taste with a softness and fruity finish. The best barrels are then selected by their Blend Master, and these are allowed to mature for a further three years. This gives the whisky it's additional flavour and complexity.

The inviting copper coloured whisky opens up with an aroma of warm, yet fresh rye. The palate has a complex depth to it, and is exceptionally smooth with warm notes of vanilla. The drink develops slowly, before developing a sweet finish with hints of rye again.

Perfect Serve

The distiller's don't believe there is 'one' correct way to enjoy their Rye. However they suggest trying at room temperature, as this ensures all the aromas are awakened. Or they reckon that enjoying with a little water brings the flavours forward and a little more pronounced.
