New Riff 8-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey Unveiled

New Riff Distilling has crafted its most mature bourbon yet, introducing the New Riff 8-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. This exceptional release marks a significant milestone in the distillery’s journey, offering a tantalizing taste of the future.

Award-Winning Flagship Bourbon, Now Aged to Perfection

The New Riff 8-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a masterful iteration of the distillery’s award-winning flagship bourbon. Bottled without chill filtration at 100 proof, it boasts a mashbill of 65% corn, 30% rye, and 5% malted barley.

This meticulously aged bourbon delivers an unparalleled symphony of flavors. Savory and spicy notes dance over a solid foundation of quintessential Kentucky whiskey. The abundance of rye spice, a hallmark of New Riff whiskeys, is perfectly balanced by deeper, more developed secondary and tertiary flavors.

A Sophisticated Expression of Time and Craft

The 8-year aging process has imparted an extraordinary richness to the bourbon. Oaky flavors are present but not overpowering, avoiding any hint of tannic bitterness. Instead, a remarkable freshness prevails, hinting at the bourbon’s potential for even longer aging.

While New Riff is renowned for its unwavering commitment to bottled-in-bond standards, the distillery opted to waive this status for this particular release. This decision was made to prioritize a wider distribution network, ensuring that more enthusiasts can experience this exceptional whiskey.
