    The nose is sweet, but has the traditional rye notes. On the palate it’s a touch sweet for 121 proof, has some spice, but finishes with loads of mint. So much so that I feel like I just brushed my teeth.

    I expected more from this. I hear they are doing interesting things, but this edition tasted like burnt medicine to me. Not to my liking, but I’m sure someone will enjoy.

    Light and sweet upon tasting followed by peaty smokiness on the finish. Delicate and nicely balanced throughout. Exceptional whisky.

    Skunky and less than tasty. Decent nose, but reeks of ethanol and not in a good way. The taste is light at first then hits you mid palate with ethanol and heat, again not in a good way. Too hot without any flavor nor nuance to make it interesting. Hard pass.

    Upon first sniff I swear it smelled like cheap tequila. Man this stuff is funky. Lite-Medium body, thin, definitely doesn’t coat the tongue. Good deal of spices and herbs; tastes medicinal without much quality flavor. Everything I envision a household cleaning product would taste like. Though it does finish with a hint of chocolate and coffee.

    Nose is sweet lite alcohol. I get some heat, caramel and peanuts when tasting. The finish is a mild burn and slight peanut taste.

    Sweet on the nose smells like raisins. Lot of heat with the high proof. Sweet and rich with baking spices and brown butter. Long finish with a touch of charcoal.

    Damn! Best pour I ever tasted. Checks all the boxes for me. Rich, sweet, some spice, heat, great nose-raisins, chocolate, velvety finish with slight fruit juice aftertaste. Wow.
