UPDATE - SOLD OUT, RETURNS FALL 2019
Started life as a single barrel of RallyPoint Rye Whiskey, aging in a new Missouri Oak barrel.
RallyPoint Maple Sunset is an extremely rare and limited-edition spirit.
Other people may add flavoring to achieve a desired result. But that’s not our style. This unique spirit was born the hard way, with time leading to full maturation. The story of this spirit is as much about the barrel itself as the RallyPoint Rye Whiskey that went into it.
This whiskey started life being distilled twice, then aging in a charred American Oak barrel from right here in Missouri. At this point, it was well on it’s way to becoming another standout Single Barrel of our RallyPoint Rye Whiskey. We intentionally select a barrel that has special traits and ideal flavors to compliment the finishing barrel. But this particular spirit is destined for something more…
The FINISHING BARREL-
This special barrel we use to add delicious flavors and nuance to our RallyPoint changes from batch to batch. However, we always use an old bourbon barrel that was used a second time to age actual maple syrup. When it is emptied after this second fill, we get our hands on it and fill it with a hand-chosen matured RallyPoint. Time alone dictates the length of maturation in the finishing barrel. It’s not ready until all the flavors achieve harmony and compliment each other.

90 Proof (45% alc/vol)
Notes of maple, holiday spices, and toasted oak on the nose. The initial taste is that of the traditional RallyPoint Rye Whiskey: caramel, earthy rye spice, and dark fruit. But as it rolls off the back of your tongue, you notice the 90 proof strength is softened by a creaminess; there are delicate traces of nutty bourbon and a distinctly pleasurable lingering smooth finish of maple syrup.
