Sagamore Double Oak

Price: £70 (US$96)

A tasting of American rye whiskies saw a Master go to Sagamore Double Oak, which was celebrated for being a “really tasty whiskey”.

Tasting notes included “sweet maple syrup, mahogany woodiness, dryness and spice from the higher ABV” and “tarte Tatin on the nose”.

The brand’s four-year-old spirit is placed into a second oak barrel to create the rye bottling. It is bottled at 48.3% ABV.
