A Midwinter Nights Dram™A limited release of Rendezvous® Rye finished in port and French oak barrels.
This is a very unique rye whiskey that tastes like the flavors of Christmas.
The name is a play on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Nights Dream. When we first tasted this special whiskey, it seemed perfect for a really cold night, hence, A Midwinter Night’s Dram.
Taste: A proper Christmas plum pudding with lovely mulling spices, dried fruits, and crème anglaise.
Finish: Long and fruity
How to Enjoy: We recommend this neat.
