Belfour Rye Receives Silver in 2020 Whiskies of the World Awards
Unique Rye Boasts Flavors of Sweet Caramel and Brown Sugar
Now in its sixth year, Whiskies of the World is supported by the International Wine & Spirits Competition. Its judging panel includes industry professionals from Texas and California, who evaluate spirits on a 100-point basis, concentrating on appearance, aromatics, flavor, mouthfeel and finish.
“Belfour Rye Whiskey is not your typical rye,” said Ed Belfour, Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “It’s more of a balanced mash bill with flavors of sweet caramel and brown sugar. Our Rye Whiskey is always a fan favorite!”
Belfour Rye Whiskey has a burnt sea-salted vanilla caramel aroma with hints of dark chocolate. Its sweet taste is followed by a full-bodied finish with velvety warmth that lingers with peppermint. The spirit is offered at 94 proof and is available in 750 ml and 200 ml bottles.
