Pikesville Straight Rye
Also from Heaven Hill Whiskey Distillery
Whiskey or Whisky
Insider knowledge: Pikesville Straight Rye whiskey is named whiskey by virtue of the fact it's from America. If distilled in Scotland the spelling would be Pikesville Straight Rye whisky, as opposed to whiskey.
Pikesville Bottling Note
This straight rye is made in the Maryland/Potomac style of rye whiskey. Pikesville offers a spicy, rich character. Great in a Manhattan!
It's a bit rougher

In Maryland, not even where its made anymore, its $13 and literally bottom shelf whiskey at the shop

Tastes like home
I feel that remark in the bottling note indicates that this is better drank with mixers. This is certainly not my favorite rye. It definitely has an aggressive taste.

Grew up in Maryland drinking Pikesville Rye and was astonished to find it in the Master of Malt Advent Calender amongst so many fine and prestigious whiskeys. Smoother than I remember, spicy with some pleasant burn.

than other ryes I've tried. I'd drink another dram of it, but when I buy I bottle of rye it will be another brand. It's not a bad rye, but I feel there are better. Karl
