Description

Aroma

Initial Impression: Prepare for a wave of rye spice that hits your nose right from the start. Black pepper takes center stage, with hints of cinnamon and clove adding warmth and complexity. Depending on the batch, you might detect a touch of grassy rye or even a subtle herbal note, influenced by the high-altitude Colorado terroir.

Deeper Sniffs: As you delve deeper, a hint of sweetness emerges, offering a pleasant counterpoint to the spice. Look for subtle notes of vanilla extract and caramel, hinting at the bourbon’s time spent maturing in charred oak barrels.  Some enthusiasts detect a touch of honey or even a hint of cocoa, adding another layer of intrigue.

Palate

First Sip: The medium-bodied character fills your mouth with a satisfying weight. The 86 proof (43% ABV) delivers a noticeable warmth that complements the rye spice. The initial taste explosion is all about the rye grain. Black pepper dominates, creating a tingling sensation on the tongue. Hints of cinnamon and clove add a layer of complexity, while the oak barrel influence might reveal itself with a subtle vanilla sweetness.

Midpalate: As the whiskey opens up, the interplay of flavors becomes more intriguing. The rye spice remains prominent, but the sweetness from the vanilla and caramel starts to emerge more noticeably. Depending on the specific batch, a hint of fruitiness like cherry or apple might appear, adding an unexpected twist.  The high-altitude maturation might showcase its influence with a subtle floral note or even a touch of citrus zest, offering a refreshing counterpoint.

Finish

Lingering Flavors: The rye spice gradually fades, leaving a pleasant warmth and a touch of dryness on the palate. Hints of vanilla, caramel, and black pepper linger alongside a subtle oaky character. The overall finish is medium-length, allowing the flavors to linger without being overpowering.
