Tasting Notes

"Bet you're wondering, "Are you gonna cry for your momma", or "are you gonna have a good time" when you sip this rye? There's no question it's a youngin'. However, the finish gives it some interest. It tastes very much like a liquid version of whole grain biscuits dipped in port wine, with a chocolatey figgy note. With such sweet, rich flavors, you might want a rock (fine, a Ragna-rock) to sip with. "
