Review #61: Willett Family Estate 7 Year Rye.
There are enough critics, cynics, and curmudgeons in the whiskey world as it is, so our goal is to foster the bourbon community in a positive way by bringing fun and entertaining content whenever possible–as such–we decided that applying precise scores to whiskey was simply too serious for us (and didn’t accurately showcase variability in taste from day to day).
Thoughts: I am a huge fan of the WFE 8 year Rye that I have (although my early rating of it was a bit higher than I would rate it now, but it’s still one my absolute favorite bottles). The green-topped ornate bottle from Willett Family Estate is easy to spot on any bar, and the fact that it carries a 7 year age-statement and single barrel selection sticker is likely to garner the attention of any whiskey enthusiast, even at a quick glance. I picked up the bottles this evening, and was so excited to learn that the bourbon proofs were both above 120 (125.2 and 129.8 for the 6 and 5 yr respectively). There have been a number of private selections over the last few years and they have been pretty hit and miss. I got into bourbon for the flavor and experiences associated with it. If you siphoned off the Dill flavor in these I'd drink the extract. Nose: Big dill apparent from the beginning. Favorite song listened to while typing review: “Water in a Well” by Sturgill Simpson. In this case John and Zeke from Dads Drinking Bourbon along with some of their Willett loving friends picked this barrel. Review #61: Willett Family Estate 7 Year Rye.
Willett Family Estate Rye – Single Barrel “Red Dragon” (Bourbon Pursuit Pick). Floral and fruity coming through first, then moving on to a dark sweet caramel and vanilla that let’s you sort of think of this like a bourbon until the rye comes into the back palate with a good dash of pepper.

Willett Family Estate Single Barrel Bourbon “Willett Ferrell” (Bourbon Pursuit Pick) Here we have a single barrel selection of a six year Willett Family Estate bourbon.
95. Anyone know the rye ratio in this?
Please log in again. This certainly moves the bar higher than the small batch, and if you have the opportunity to experience one of the age-stated rye picks, I’d recommend it.
Barrel No. Love mgp rye for that reason!
Cheers! In fact, it works better here than in any other Willett product I have tasted to date. The secondary market values this far above the MSRP and I’m fortunate to have gotten this at cost. The rye spice shows up and mixes with cherry and vanilla.
Loads of dill on this one, but doesn’t have the depth or complexity of the 8 year.

As our readers will likely recall from the Willett Family Estate single barrel bourbon review, that particular product is distinct in that it is only released as a single barrel offering; whereas the Willett Family Estate rye is offered as a small batch or as a single barrel selection. Fills the mouth and comes back for an encore. Anise and baking spice adds more spiciness to the nose. Lots of herbal, zesty rye spice and burnt sugar. After logging in you can close it and return to this page. Nose: Big dill apparent from the beginning. Totally agree with everything you said. Anise and baking spice adds more spiciness to the nose. Proof: 115.6. $150 isn’t cheap but Willett private barrels are very hard to find and getting access to the program is next to impossible. It’s sort of a head-scratcher in that each time I feel like I want to describe the finish as being sweet, it’s balanced by rye spice and pepper. They are experienced at the barrel picking process which so they did a great job and I will enjoy this bottle until it’s gone. Palate: Pickle juice.
There’s a really good mix of sweet spicy goodness. Dill.
Pour a bit and enjoy, friends, these are the good old days of whiskey!
Most of the time, the determining factor on whether it is a hit is like all private picks; the people picking. There’s some interesting soft milk chocolate in there. An earthy, black tea aroma mellows out the spice and ethanol burn.
I wouldn’t pay a huge premium for this but I was happy to pick this up and enjoyed it quite a bit. The presence of what I refer to as “the Willett note” is there, but not in an off-putting way.
