James E Pepper Single Barrel Rye – We imagine Whiskey-makers to have names like “Angus McSolid” and look like “The Most Interesting Man in the World.” The founder of Georgetown Trading Co. — Amir Peay — looks like a Bond villain from the Sean Connery era. That means we have a craft-distilling company making a range of full-flavored, high-quality Spirits owned by someone who just might be an agent of SECTRE. Their range of quality brands includes John H. Sullivan Irish Whiskies, the historic James E. Pepper 1776 Bourbons and Ryes, Pow Wow Botanical Rye, and 1776 Napa Valley Wines.

The aroma is herbal and fresh with notes of dill, anise, plenty of spice, and butterscotch.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate builds upon the aromas with more herbals and spice as a foundation for deep notes of cocoa, leather, apricot, and vanilla toffee.
The finish is long and spicy with hints of oak and zest.
