Treaty Oak Whsky Red Handed Rye Bourbon 750ML
Treaty Oak is a Texas distillery founded in 2006 near Austin with a story so familiar that Iâ€™m getting tired of repeating it on this blog. An upstart distillery, not enough startup capital, long time to wait for whiskey to age, blah blah blah. These guys added a clever twist by branding their â€œget sourced whiskey to pay the billsâ€ bottlings under the â€œRed Handedâ€ moniker. In other words, they stole somebody elseâ€™s whiskey. Yuk yuk.
The rye has a bit higher ABV at 50%, and an actual age statement at a resounding 10 years. Thatâ€™s pretty high for rye in the current market. A bit of digging revealed that this rye is from the Schenley distillery, at a mashbill of 53% rye, 39% corn and 8% barley. I spent a little too much time researching this, as the name Schenley is both a storied name in American whiskey and also awash with confusion.
