Dad's Hat Pennsylvania Straight Rye whiskey: 3 years old, 95 proof. The nose has dried orange peel, grape juice, dried oregano, hay and sweet floral notes. The palate is sweet up front, then gives way to a balance between spicy and grassy notes, and a dry finish. This is simply a fantastic whiskey, fresh but fully realized at just 3 years. Buy it now. #whiskey #whisky #rye @dadshatrye

@xbeerandbaconx It has a different mash - the Willett is 3/4 rye, then corn and malted barley; Dad's Hat is 4/5 rye, then malted barley and malted rye. So the absence of corn and the addition of malted rye make a difference. It's been a while since I tried the Willett, but iirc it had a brighter, grassier flavor.

@xbeerandbaconx

How does it compare to the Willett 3 YO rye?

@wcurtis

Ask them about their Sombrero variant.

@risenc

It's about empty now! That stuff went fast.

@tn.wicker

Uh looks like that bottle isn't open. Are you sure you didn't have WT101 Rye instead?

@bleakleymcdowell

I'll buy it for the name alone
