Willett 4yr Rye

Amazing Rye! Thank you to every at Chips for the outstanding service & fast shipping! It’s almost impossible to find in Maryland/Delaware/DC/VA area and if you do find one it’s usually 3-5x msrp


On par with the finest Guyana out there. Works fantastic in a cocktail or on its own. Perfect addition to the tiki shelf. Totally worth it.

Good stuff

Another great offering from Hamilton. Would give it 5 stars but it just falls a bit short of the same offering in black...which is my absolute go to. Nevertheless, worth having on your tiki shelf.


Huge fan of everything Hamilton puts out. Was eager to try this offering. Honestly, was a little disappointed with this one. Very pervasive metallic note. At first I thought that maybe my nose was overwhelmed by the alcohol when I did the initial tasting. Not the case. Whipped up really juicy tiki cocktail, pineapple, passion fruit etc and just one oz. of the st Lucia really added a sharp metallic note to the drink. Sorry Ed, love what you do, but this one, I cannot abide.
