Press Release

Penelope Bourbon announces annual release of Penelope Toasted Rye

Bourbon Obsessed’s comment: On a personal note, I am excited about this one! Last year, when we were traveling, my wife accidentally dropped a box of whiskey, and my bottle broke after I had just one pour from it. I remember it being great, though, so I can’t wait to try it again!

ROSELLE, N.J., July 10, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Penelope’s second release in its annual Straight Rye Whiskey Toasted Series is now available. The first-ever release of Penelope Toasted Rye Whiskey achieved high acclaim at the 2024 San Francisco World Spirits Competition by scoring 99 points and winning Double Gold.

Penelope Toasted Rye Tasting Notes

(From the distillery) Penelope Toasted Rye features a layered aroma on the nose with bold, sweet butterscotch and a body of vanilla and toasted marshmallow balanced with notes of light tobacco and fruit. Toasted Rye’s long finish has a sweet dessert character with orange peel and subtle spice.

“After aging the rye whiskey for six years prior to finishing, this year’s release resulted in a profile that we believe will really stand out,” said Daniel Polise, founder and master blender of Penelope Bourbon. “The char 2 profile of the finishing barrels used brought out rich butterscotch notes to the blend of selected barrels, adding additional layers and depth to a great rye whiskey.”

Are you looking forward to trying this year’s release of Penelope Toasted Rye? I know I am! Cheers!
