Tasting Notes

"The Polish component to this whiskey may have one expecting an unusual dram, but this release from Barrell lands with all the distinctive spice of a good rye. Hints of charred oak and vanilla come through on the palate, and its warming finish lingers lastingly with a pleasant woodiness. At 117.5 proof, it has the strength and character to stand up to a few cubes of ice. This is a rye lovers' rye."
