What we have here is a homemade (at least I think so) 4 year old rye from Willett, a Kentucky distillery that’s been open for at least 10-15 years but didn’t start distilling and aging their own stocks till probably the early 2010’s. From what I’ve heard, their oldest homemade releases may be around 6-7 years old and everything older is sourced, but I could be wrong about that. The Willett 4 Year Rye though is slowly becoming a more widespread release, at least around where I live, so in time you may also occasionally be able to find it. These Family Estate Ryes are truly made in small batches and at cask strength as each batch has a different proof. While Willett hasn’t really shared much information about this rye, let’s instead get some in-person experience in this Willett Family Estate 4 Year Rye whiskey review.
