Hard Truth Chocolate Malt Sweet Mash Rye Whiskey
Hard Truth Master Distiller’s Reserve Chocolate Malt Sweet Mash Rye Whiskey (RW-3) brings the deep, roasted chocolate espresso notes from chocolate malted barley to play with the sweetness of corn and the nice baking spice of rye grain.
This, and the other two whiskeys in the 2022 Hard Truth Master Distiller’s Reserve collection, are the first of an extremely limited, annual release of sweet mash whiskeys that have been handcrafted, aged, custom-blended, and bottled by the distillers at Hard Truth.
