Tasting Notes

"For rye fans, this is a really fun sipper. The grassy, green tea flavors of their rye are well tempered with the grapiness of the brandy. It still runs a bit hot, but there's lots to chew on between the warm spicy notes, the bran flakes cereal element and the toffee richness. Add a big cube for best enjoyment. "
