Very Olde St Nick (VOSN) was the very first brand to take quirky, odd lot barrels of whatever they could find that was good. It wasn’t long ago that no one really wanted old barrels of whiskey, besides the international market VOSN was now appealing to. The barrels of rye whiskey for this release were selected before the heat of the summer could get an even larger angles’ share. From that came the name “Summer Rye”, a play-off of “Samurai”. This barrel-proof expression is bottled at 117.8 proof
