Rye Whiskey is one of those things that people either love or hate… is what most people say. I, however, believe that there is a rye whiskey for everyone. It’s just that you have to find the right profiles that sit with each person’s individual tastes.

The good news, Boxergrail is a great middle-ground rye whiskey that has a good and mild set of rye profiles. We’re excited to review this, as we’ve been big into rye whiskeys lately, and we know this one doesn’t disappoint.

Finish: Leather, tobacco, dried oak, dried vanilla. 


The Boxergrail is a great pour that fully displays what it means to be a well-rounded rye. 

There is a delicious sweetness that makes it a good “bridge pour” for those who enjoy bourbons. But, there’s enough of a distinction to make sure it is definitely unique in its own right. 

There is a nice, short, sweetness to the pour that makes it not overbearing and allows you to keep going back for more.
