FEW Rye Whiskey Bottling Note

This Rye Whiskey melds rye (70%) with the mellowness of corn (20%) and complexity of malted barley (10%) in its mash bill, leaving us with a rather fine drink indeed. The fermented mash is then distilled to 67.5% abv, barrelled at 57.55% abv and bottled at 46.5% abv

FEW Spirits hails from Evanston in the United States of America, a city that suffered Prohibition for over one hundred years thanks to many of its advocates hailing from its dry streets. Thankfully Evanston is now home to this excellent craft distillery which takes its name ironically from the initials of Frances Elizabeth Willard, a key figure in the Temperance Movement.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: The aroma is particularly fruity with notes of apples, pears and plums with a spicy after thought.

Palate: The flavour is as fruity as the aroma with more apples and pears but also a little unripe banana and candied orange peel.

Finish: The finish is long and lingering with notes of fresh orange juice, spice and apple tart.

Overall: This is a truly exceptional rye whiskey with a beautifully balanced and fruity flavour profile.

    User Reviews of the FEW Rye Whiskey

    Needs some air, warmth and a few drops of water

    I was given a bottle. My first glass, so so.
    On my second try I used a thin walled glass. I added a few drops of non-chlorine water and swirled in the glass using my hand to warm the liquid. After a few minutes of airing and a little warmth my so so it raised to pretty darn good. Some of the odors mentioned in other reviews disappear with a little airing.

    Cardboard Smell; Incredible Taste & Finish

    Nose: cardboard, wet shoe leather - rather unappealing. Taste: surprisingly nice, warm sweet vanilla and clover honey. Finish: long lasting sweet warm clover honey. Overall this was a great drink. The smell was a turn off at first, but the taste and finish overcame making it a worthwhile addition to the liquor cabinet. Interesting to say the least.

    Skip it

    This rye is way too young. Tastes like a white whiskey.

    I'm loving it

    I don't know if it's variation by barrel that is causing the mixed reviews of this Rye, but for me it's complexity is wonderful and satisfying. There is a floral note along with a woody finish. For the record my bottle is from batch 14-22. Cant wait to try another bottle.

    I find the pungent aroma suits my palate perfectly. This stuff is an adventure for your sinus cavity. Easily one of my favourite whiskeys of any kind.

    Just tried it

    and it smells like glue and tastes like cardboard-y, plasticky moonshine. It has a touch of smoothness at the end, though. Maybe it'll age into something good.

    18th June 2014


    This is a very young whiskey with no developed character or depth of flavor. The rye spirit is there, but it is very green (young and vegetal), astringent, and it does not sip OR mix well. You can't run away fast enough from the off-putting flavor and bad mouthfeel. I cannot conceive of any reputable publication giving it an award, except for its packaging. What can I buy for $65? Three bottles of far superior rye from many a producer.

    A good rye

    It doesn't have the classic mid Atlantic flavor but it makes up for it with its complex terpenoid head and makes a fabulous rye and ginger

    8th June 2014

    Whisky Advocate is Nuts giving this rye any award.

    This stuff is harsher than some white whisky's I have tried.

    5th April 2014

    ryed on?

    Not your traditional Rye. Thin, sweet and only a little bite. Not dry enough either.
    But, it's enjoyable and promising.
    More age and we will have a winner!

    Overpriced, underdelivers

    For 65bux there are so many better options, to bad ownership hasnt realized it yet

    29th September 2013

    Like kissing your mother

    Unpleasant aroma kills the flavor. Has a peculiar finish reminicient of a visit to the dentists office. Can't agree with the ratings. Way overpriced.

    23rd June 2013

    Love It or Hate It?

    Well, if making an independent flavor statement is what FEW had in mind, they've certainly achieved that in spades. Five stars or One, take your pick; everyone seems to either hate this rye whiskey or love it. I'm with the love-its.

    11th May 2013

    Too young

    I have issue with thi in that I believe the whiskey in this bottle is no more than 18 months old, certainly tastes that way, maybe a little bit of the creator having to sell before its ready in order to reinvest, but I say leave it in cask for longer to mellow and maybe give it some flavour. Certainly will not be buying this again when there are lots of other ryes out there!

    My "Go to" drink for a mellow night cap...

    This rye whiskey is super smooth, and has a nice, smokey fragrance. It has a bit of bite, but not enough to make a girl cry, which is good, because half my bottle has been used to impress women :)

    My dad, who's a single malt scotch drinker... got converted to rye after I let him have a few sips.

    I really don't understand why this product would have 1 star reviews; this is possibly the most interesting bottle I have in my bar, and if Master of Malt had a 'subscribe and save' feature, I would add this to a bi-monthly renewal.

    24th March 2013

    It's really good

    my favourite rye. big and peppery. takes a little getting used to. Very, very addictive and a lot of fun to drink. Almost too much..

    24th January 2013

    Can't recall tasting a worse whiskey

    I didn't realize whiskey could go bad. While of course it cannot, these samples would make one wonder. Reminded me of day old grass clippings. Disgustingly sweet on the finish.

    31st December 2012


    I buy Rye for its bite; this to me tastes like an unhappy marriage between rye and a sweetener of some description - not a success.

    Makes a mean manhattan

    Bought a sample of this (and each of the other FEW spirits). Whilst not a fan of their gins, the Rye whiskey is bloomin' good. Not as oily as, say, Canadian club, its very tasty, spicy with some slight sweetness. As the title says, makes a great manhattan.

    28th October 2012

    This is

    Sweet, fruity and very spicy. The bottle's cool too. Fantastic stuff.
