Penelope Toasted Rye Returns for 2024

Penelope Toasted Rye
Penelope Toasted Rye is back for 2024.

Penelope’s second release in its annual Straight Rye Whiskey Toasted Series is now available.

This year’s expression is the result of finishing a 95% rye and 5% malted barley mash bill in new freshly toasted barrels.

“After what we achieved with last year’s release, we are really excited for our second installment,” said Michael Paladini, founder. “Our first Toasted Rye scored 99 points at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and we’re confident this release will be equally well received.” 

Penelope Toasted Rye has aromas of sweet butterscotch and a body of vanilla and toasted marshmallow, the company reports, balanced with notes of light tobacco and fruit. Toasted Rye’s finish has a sweet dessert character with orange peel and spice notes.

“After aging the rye whiskey for six years prior to finishing, this year’s release resulted in a profile that we believe will really stand out,” says Daniel Polise, founder and master blender. “The char 2 profile of the finishing barrels used brought out rich butterscotch notes to the blend of selected barrels, adding additional layers and depth to a great rye whiskey.”

Penelope Toasted Rye Whiskey (Batch 24-304) is on shelf now with a limited allocation of 9,000 (6-in) cases at a minimum suggested retail price of $74.99 per 750-ml. bottle.

This follows the recent release of Penelope Rosé Cask Bourbon 2024.

In May of last year, Penelope Bourbon was acquired by MGP.
