Product Description

Celebrate the one and only John Wayne with the Duke Founder's Reserve Double Barrel Rye Whiskey - a bottle inspired by his personal liquor collection.

Founded by Chris Radomski and Wayne’s youngest son Ethan, Duke Spirits looks back at one of the paragons of American cinema. Drawing from the treasure trove of spirits left by his father, Ethan sought to recreate some of the legendary actor’s favorite sippers commissioning a Kentucky bespoke distiller to meticulously craft each spirit to replicate their unique flavor profiles.

Released as the third spirit that resulted from their venture, the Duke Founder's Reserve Double Barrel Rye Whiskey serves as the brand’s second cask-finished whiskey after the Duke’s Grand Cru. Distilled exclusively from rye grain, the whisky is initially aged in used wine barrels before being finished in different wine barrels that were previously used to age Duke’s bourbon. The end result is a superbly complex, sweet, and spicy expression that pay homage to Wayne’s own devotion to achieving perfection of his craft.

On the nose, this rye yields a lovely aroma of cherry, spice, marzipan, and vanilla bean, paving the way for rich and velvety palate of rye, dark fruits, malt, more spice, and smoke, before culminating in a persistent finish of even more rye spice and fruity sweetness.

Perfect for mixing or just regular neat sipping, the Duke Founder's Reserve Double Barrel Rye Whiskey is no-nonsense spirit that would definitely make John Wayne proud. So pick up a bottle today and enjoy it alongside a selection of the Duke’s classic performances for a truly satisfying whiskey drinking experience.
