I love a good independent bottler… and I love Middle West.  I previously tried this rye from Middle West at a lower proof and batched… and loved it.  I was quite excited to try it at cask strength… and Lost Lantern not disappoint. If you’re a fan of good rye whiskey… You need to try this pumpernickel rye.
