Old Overholt is proud to unveil Old Overholt® Extra Aged Cask Strength Rye, a 10-year-old rye whiskey hitting shelves nationwide in limited quantities this fall. Aged in a single and unique escalator-style warehouse before being bottled cask strength and unfiltered, this special release provides rye whiskey enthusiasts and collectors the rare opportunity to experience Old Overholt’s distinct spice and depth in a more robust, cask strength expression.
Old Overholt® Extra Aged Cask Strength Rye is a new ultra-premium expression from the makers of the oldest continually produced and maintained whiskey in America. Marking the first publicly available cask strength expression from the brand since the mid-20th century, this new release is a testament to the resilient spirit that has kept Overholt at the forefront of American Rye for over 200 years.
Old Overholt® Extra Aged Cask Strength Rye was barreled in the Winter & Autumn seasons of 2012 and laid down in one of the few remaining “Escalator Warehouses” in Clermont, Kentucky – Warehouse V. This style of warehousing has led to an incredible consistency and gentle mellowing over time for the small batch of barrels curated for this special release.
