Forbes Whiskey Of The Week: Lost Lantern Far-Flung Rye

Far Flung Rye is a blend of rye whiskeys, aged between 4-9 years, from five Midwestern distilleries: Cedar Ridge; Middle West Spirits; Wollersheim; Indiana’s Starlight Distillery; and Tom’s Foolery from Ohio.

Rich dark chocolate notes and malty undertones combine with faint grassiness and hints of rye bread. As can be expected with such a high-proof spirit, it’s bold and a little hot, but a few drops of water bring down the heat without diluting the flavor. With so few bottles in existence and a $100 price tag (suggested, at least), I don’t know if I’d suggest making a cocktail with it. but it does make a spectacular, desserty Black Manhattan.
