This features a mash bill of 75 percent corn, 21 percent rye and 4 percent malted barley, and was sourced from MGP in Indiana.

"The nose offers a smoky, charred profile, with caramel and molasses. There's also a grainy component, along with rye spice. The mouthfeel is creamy with nutty and buttery flavors and a backbone of spice and vanilla. The finish is short and sharp, with more rye spice, and a touch of cinnamon. "
