Dads Hat Bottled in Bond Rye Whiskey Hard to find in stock!Our rarest rye whiskey ever, Dads Hat Bonded Straight Rye is available only in limited release. While fully mature at four years of aging, this whiskey is destined to delight rye-lovers everywhere with multiple layers of intense spice rye is known for. Due to a growing problem with counterfeit whiskey, the U.S. Congress passed the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897. As a result, strict quality standards were established for a whiskey to wear the exclusive Bottled in Bond designation.Bonded whiskey must be at least four years old, aged in new, charred oak barrels, by one distiller at one distillery, and bottled at 100 proof. Only spirits produced in the United States may be designated as bonded.Made with locally-sourced grains, Dad's Hat Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey is aged for just under a year in quarter casks in a temperature-controlled barrelhouse, and was named the Craft Whisky of the Year by Whisky Advocate in December 2015."Dad's Hat Pennsylvania Rye Whiskies pay homage to our state's rich tradition of making small-batch whiskey," says Herman Mihalich, master distiller at Mountain Laurel Spirits. Raised in Monessen (a small city situated in southwest Pennsylvania) and armed with a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from Wharton, Mihalich has spent most of his life in Pennsylvania. "I really wanted to revive that entrepreneurial spirit and rich rye heritage we have here,"he says.Dad's Hat Rye is made from a mash of 80% rye, 15% malted barley and 5% malted rye. After Mihalich sources all of the grains from local farmers in Pennsylvania, he slowly ferments the mash for approximately seven days before distilling it though a 500-gallon Christian Carl copper-pot still imported from Germany. The still, which is augmented by a side-column, allows Mihalich to remove any impurities in the whiskey, while simultaneously refining its flavor and texture.After distillation, Dad's Hat Pennsylvania Rye is aged in charred, white oak quarter casks (15-gallon casks) for just under one year in a temperature-controlled warehouse. The small casks and climate-controlled aging give the whiskey hints of cinnamon, dried fruits, nuts and candied apple, which nicely balance out the flavor of the spicy rye.After maturing, each cask of Dad's Hat Rye Whiskey is brought to proof and bottled by hand.
