Sagamore Spirit’s Port Finish Is The World’s Best Rye Whiskey

Making the claim that anything is the “best in the world” is a pretty slippery slope. But when the claim comes from a panel of the world’s top experts, it’s a hard one to ignore. That’s the case with Sagamore Spirit’s Port Finish rye whiskey, which just took home the gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

As you might imagine, Baltimore-based Sagamore Spirit — which was co-founded and is still owned by none other than Under Armour’s Kevin Plank — is very proud of their achievement, as they rightfully should be. But the award is not simply happenstance, as the rye whiskey they’ve crafted is a special one, indeed. This is due in large part to the fact that it’s finished in the finest European and American Port barrels — lending the spirit notes of cherry, plum, and baking spices with a full and dry finish. This American-made, 101 proof, dark amber whiskey is available now for $70 — if you can find it on the shelves, that is.
