Clyde May’s Straight Rye Whiskey

$101.98

Clyde May’s Rye is aptly named after Clyde May who was an Alabama farmer. May had a storied history as being a talented moonshiner in the mid-20th century, refining his craft over the years and ultimately spending time in a federal penitentiary because of this. Known for his usage of oven-dried apples, May would add these to his barrels during the aging process resulting in a distinctive flavor profile. In 2001, May’s son recreated his father’s recipe and legally began distilling Clyde May’s.

Clyde May’s Straight Rye is aptly named after Clyde May who was an Alabama farmer. Youthful hints of sweet vanilla, corn, light Rye grain, green apple, and ripe honeydew. … The scents work as a nice way to start the sip, however the youth of the whiskey is more prevalent than I would have preferred.

Nose:

Youthful hints of sweet vanilla, corn, light rye grain, green apple, and ripe honeydew. The scents work as a nice way to start the sip, however the youth of the whiskey is more prevalent than I would have preferred.

Palate:

Lightly charred oak, green peppercorn, and green apples mix with sweeter flavors of vanilla, syrup, and hints of toasted brown sugar. The spice is more noticeable in the sip versus the nose, however it comes across as slightly unbalanced.

Finish:

Fresh baked bread, corn, and sweet vanilla all lay on top of a lingering rye spice note. The spice lasts for a surprisingly long time and is one of the highlights of the sip.
