Belfour Spirits Receives a 96-Point Rating from The Tasting Panel Magazine
Limited Edition Straight Rye Whiskey Receives a "Head Over Heels in Love" Stamp of Approval
The whiskey was featured in the esteemed Publisher’s Picks column and given a “head over heels in love” stamp of approval from Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Meridith May. She notes: “This whiskey’s sensational packaging features a championship cup as its bottle cap, but the 100-proof spirit is a lover, not a fighter. Aromas of orange pekoe tea, plum and peach blossom captivate, and the palate is sumptuous, with notes of oat cereal, caramel, stone fruit, green tea, and marzipan. Walnut tannins dry the tongue, but the finish is dignified and pleasurable, with flavors of tangerine and butterscotch.”
You can see the review of Belfour Spirit’s Limited Edition Straight Rye Whiskey on page 53 of The Tasting Panel’s September/October 2020 issue.
“It’s a tremendous honor to be awarded a 96-point rating from such a prestigious magazine,” said Ed Belfour, founder and CEO of Belfour Spirits. “My son, Dayn, made the 12 barrels of our Limited Edition Straight Rye Whiskey at the end of his internship at Woody Creek Distillery in Basalt, Colo. This was our first whiskey made, so receiving a rating like this feels incredible. I can tell you this was truly made with love, and I’m extremely proud of his work.”
Offered at 100 proof, Belfour Spirits recommends enjoying this one-of-a-kind spirit in a neat pour.
The Belfour Limited Edition Straight Rye Whiskey is presented in a custom, decanter-like bottle with a 1920s-inspired pattern resembling cut crystal. The cork features a one-ounce chalice plated with sterling silver. The autographed and numbered bottle is wrapped beautifully in a custom Belfour Spirits box, making this a truly unique gift and collector’s item.
