Description

Nose

Spicy Rye: The signature rye character hits you first, offering a peppery warmth with hints of clove and dill.

Sweet Touches: Balancing the spice are subtle notes of vanilla bean and cinnamon, along with a hint of citrus that adds a touch of freshness.

Oak Influence: A gentle breath reveals the whiskey’s time in oak barrels, with hints of woody vanilla and toasted caramel.

Palate

Spicy Arrival: The rye spice carries over from the nose, delivering a warming kick on the tongue.

Sweet Counterpoint: Vanilla and butterscotch sweetness come to the forefront, creating a pleasant balance with the spice. Some reviews mention hints of strawberry or cherry, adding a fruity dimension.

Herbal Notes: Subtle grassy or herbal notes might emerge, adding complexity and hinting at the rye grain’s origin.

Creamy Texture: The whiskey has a smooth, almost buttery mouthfeel, making it easy to sip and savor.

Finish

Lingering Spice: The rye spice returns in the finish, creating a pleasant warmth that lingers on the tongue.

Hint of Honey: A subtle sweetness of honey emerges, adding a touch of complexity and balancing the lingering pepper.

Length: Reviews vary on the finish length. Some describe it as long and slow, while others find it to be shorter, with the spice and sweetness fading fairly quickly.
