2022 Single Cask #9: Dad’s Hat

Rye With A Twist

We hand-selected this cask from Mountain Laurel Spirits, better known by its flagship brand Dad’s Hat, which has revived Pennsylvania’s historic distilling tradition. The state’s whiskey history dates to the colonial era, but by the 1990s, Pennsylvania rye whiskey had disappeared completely. Dad’s Hat has brought this long tradition back to life, driven by a deep commitment to the state’s history, farmers, and culture.

This release was made by finishing 4-year-old Dad’s Hat straight rye whiskey for 5 months in an ex-vermouth cask, which amplifies and builds upon the sweeter elements of the underlying rye whiskey. It has apricot and spearmint on the nose, and a rich palate that balances big baking spice, citrusy sweetness, and fresh green grass. A unique and deeply flavorful twist that shows how the right finish can naturally complement a whiskey. It is Dad’s Hat first-ever vermouth-finished single cask.
