Oregon Spirit Straight American Rye
Rye — Oregon, USAReviewed January 5, 2022Semi sweet and spiced smell. First taste, you can feel some depth. Smooth and not so spicy. Little oaky and oily. Some fruitiness. A lot of notes and for me that separates this from most run of the mill ryes. Very very good. Impressed.
