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. Using a previous distillation allows one recipe to inform the flavor of another.

New Riff BACKSETTER Peated Rye and Bourbon 2 Bottle Set Whiskey Tasting Notes

New Riff Backsetter Bourbon has an oaky nose, and with water opens to grain and rye spice against a smoldering backdrop, the company reports. The palate is soft-textured with the peat more immediate than on the nose. A spicy rye top note at midpalate is joined by smoke, oak, sweet corn and grassy rye. 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. After a splash of water the peat retreats into notes of grassy rye and subtle cinnamon spice. Medium- to full-bodied on the palate, rounded and chewy — and with quite a bit of peat — the Backsetter Rye’s midpalate of sugared fruit and cinnamon-allspice heads to a finish of smoke and rye spice, with notes of Thai long black pepper and grain of paradise.
