New Release: The Rye Project, Volume One

By The Bourbon Flight

Wolves Whiskey partners with Willett Family Estate on Volume One of the Rye Project. The blend consists of a very low-rye (51%) whiskey aged for 6 years in new American oak, blended with a more aggressive 6 and 7 year Rye (74%) whiskey distilled by the Willett Distillery.  The expression will be released on December 6th.

While well-balanced for a unique Rye expression, the majority of the Volume One blend is the renowned Willett 6 and 7 year Rye.  The custom cork top was inspired by the knob of a baseball bat that is a family heirloom of Jon Buscemi.

The textured label was created in partnership with a bespoke wine label producer in Sonoma County.

Batch One: 103 proof
Batch One Yield: 623 cases


  • Nose: Oak, vanilla, pepper, dried fruit, butterscotch, copper, floral, spice
  • Palate: Oak, dried dark fruit, vanilla, butterscotch, angel food cake, oily mouthfeel
  • Finish: Medium-short, warm vanilla, rising spice
