R2D8 was a surprise to me!  I wanted to offer a rye on WhiskeyDicPicks but was concerned about some of the flavor profiles I've tasted out there... many taste too young, too minty, too herbacious, but not R2D8!


I've always wanted to work with Stellum but when I tried the samples they sent over I was shocked at just how well rounded and refined R2D8 came out of the barrel.


This Rye delivers on Fruits!  Peaches and Apricots, baking spices, black pepper and smooth!  The smooth delivery may get you in trouble when you consider the ABV is 58.12%.


I'd suggest this Rye for someone who wants to shy away from overly aggressive rye flavor and instead prefers a very high rye bourbon as that's how it drinks.


ABV: 58.12% (116.24 Proof)

Age: 4 years

Mashbill: 95% Rye, 5% Malted Barley


Tasting Notes

Stone Fruits like Peaches, Apricots, Plums, Baking Spices, Cinnamon, Clove, Black Pepper, Long Finish, Super Smooth!


Why is it called R2D8?  Because it's the 2nd Rye sample, and it's called D8! ... beep boop

Stellum R2D8
