Just in time for derby season we are excited to introduce Buzzard’s Roost Cigar Rye. This new limited edition rye was created from four-year-old whiskey and aged in our proprietary American Oak barrels. Prior to aging, our barrels were cold-smoked with aged Kentucky tobacco leaves.
The unique barrel alchemy that Buzzard’s Roost has come to be known for lends sweet, smoky aromas of a fine cigar. The nose offers notes of florals and rye bread followed by a light hint of smoke and cinnamon and brown sugar. The palate is a delicate combination of candy sweetness and confectionery notes that fade mid-palate to citrus and cigar tobacco followed by a sweet and toasty finish.
This exceptional expression is made up of a mash bill of 95 percent rye and 5 percent malted barley. At a 105 proof, Cigar Rye is great for enjoying straight, or over a single large whiskey rock.
Buzzard’s Roost Cigar has an SRP of $75 and will be available while supplies last. Head out to your front porch and rab a cigar and a glass of Cigar Rye and roost awhile.
