Tasting Notes

"Hard to mistake this for anything else, this is definitely rye. The aroma makes sure you know straight away: Toasted rye grain, big spices, even an aroma of thick-cut rye toast. While the palate starts strong with bold spices and dark roasted grain, the thin texture and weak mid-palate show the true bones of this whiskey. The finish adds a little more dimension with heavy char notes."
