Detailed Description

Under the name Backsetter, these two expressions utilize a portion of the grain “backset” from a previous distillation in the mash of the new batches, here with peat-smoked malted barley and rye. The duo includes New Riff Backsetter Bourbon, and New Riff Backsetter Rye. Both the New Riff Backsetter Bourbon and Rye are bottled-in-bond without chill filtration, and aged at least four years. The Backsetter Bourbon is 65% corn, 30% rye and 5% malted barley. The Backsetter Rye is 95% rye and 5% malted rye. With the same mashbill as New Riff’s standard bourbon and rye recipes, co-founder Jay Erisman says the peat-smoked malted barley and rye backsets lend a smoky cast to the whiskeys.

The finish pings between smoky peat and a peppery-clove rye note.

New Riff Backsetter Rye shows peat at the front of the nose with hints of fruit and grassy rye, the company reports.
