What's in a name? Jefferson's 10 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey is called whiskey because it's produced in America. Were it from Scotland it would be spelled Jefferson's 10 Year Old Straight Rye Whisky, rather than whiskey.
Nose: Hints of apples, peaches and vanilla.
Palate: Malty with big notes of rye, followed by a hot ginger and an almost bourbon-like sweetness.
Finish: Spicy, the ginger lasting.
Overall: Excellent aged rye whiskey.
