For this modern classic, casks previously inhabited by Quady Winery’s Vya Sweet Vermouth are carefully selected to create an amazing double finish rye. The process takes Dad’s Hat flagship rye (already aged a minimum of 6 months) and ages it a second time in select vermouth barrels for an additional 3 months — merging the warm, balanced flavors of American vermouth with the smooth spicy rye to deliver an exceptional nose with a distinctive taste and character all on its own.
Tasting Notes: Deep reddish-brown hue yields to a rich nose of orange, cinnamon, pepper, and vanilla — evolving as it opens. Leads with up-front spice to mid-palate dryness with the delicate finish of sweet vermouth on the back of the tongue. Round, complex flavor delivered in layers and demanding to be savored.
