Insider knowledge: Jefferson's 10 Year Old Straight Rye Whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from America. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Jefferson's 10 Year Old Straight Rye Whisky, as opposed to 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.
