    Not really sure what to say here about this one, I have a fairly decent sized collection of what I feel is some of the better Whiskey's you can get. What really sets this one apart from the rest is the fact that when I want something different from what I have, this is a solid "never disappoints", maybe it's the Rum cask finish, not sure, but if you do happen across this at a decent $$ (Costco for me) you will in no way be left with a buyers remorse purchase here, you'll find yourself dipping into this Bottle more than you thought.

    "Great for Whiskey Sour's", but as a sipper in the evening on it's own, nope, not going to happen. On a personal note, this bottle is not alone when it comes to over saturating the market right now in the bottling of Rye/Bourbon's in the market place, over production with mediocre product just to turn a buck. Sorry, but this stuff to is much $$, for a market loaded with Rye's that are far better.

    As a Bourbon/Rye guy that sometimes finds his way into neighborhoods he isn't familiar with (Scotch) but knows just enough to get around, I can honestly say, this stuff delivers. From nose to palate, your blasted with a fantastic taste that is impressive clear to the finish, if available, get it, absolutely nothing here that can disappoint anybody with this one.

    This caught me off guard, great nose as well as palate, right up there with the best of them. The heat on this was intense, really intense, but here is the problem, the finish was sublime, mediocre at best, very little complexity to it, I really really wanted it to slap me in the face at the end, but it didn't.

    Solid stuff! Was taken back by it's ability to hold it's own against other formidable Ryes out there. Found 4 on shelf and proceeded to buy 2 here in San Diego at a local Beverage chain, took a chance, knew if I went back for another they would be gone regardless if it was good or not. No buyer remorse here whatsoever, hits fairly strong at first on all notes with palate as well as finish, but tapers real fast to zero, not chewy at all, but thats ok, bang for the buck this stuff delivers!

    The reason for 5 stars is because of the low budget potential this offers. Bigtime wake up with a touch of water, you will be hard pressed to find this type of flavor with the other high dollar players in the whiskey market, pour-it water-it rest-it, your palate will thank you.

    Finally bought a bottle at Costco after I walked by it the last 6 weeks or so. This is one is a little weird, at first sample I was not that impressed, fair to good, just not overwhelming to either the palate or the finish compared to other mid-level or higher priced ryes. Now after it sitting around a while, I went back to it for a little change in taste, smooth with a touch of heat at 53.1% it was very comfortable, palate had what I would call a light brown sugar taste (mild) & hints of caramel/toffee, not sure what happened here, maybe an off day at first, but on a second tasting, it's a nice product for the price, no disappointments, going back to see if any more are in stock :)
