When the law finally caught up to Scottish immigrant and Prohibition-era Louisiana moonshiner Willie Turner, he was given the choice of jail time or a one-way ticket out of town. Hmm, what to do? He chose the latter and hopped the rails with his brother for awhile and eventually they made their way to the Pacific Northwest. In Seattle, Willie's great-grandson Troy Turner carries on the tradition passed down through the generations of his family, albeit wholly on the up and up, with his co-founder Joe Eliasen at the Tatoosh Distillery.The Rye is produced from a mash of 70% locally-grown Rye and 30% Corn, and is aged for 2 years in full-sized, 53 gallon new white oak with a #4 char. Proofed with Cascade Mountain water to 43% abv. The nose is full of bright red cherry fruit and orange blossom honey, vanilla and a delicate woody spice. Silky entry, not hot - baking spice and leather at first, opening up to milk chocolate and coffee notes. Persistent finish. Warm and lifted. -DTP
