Tasting Notes

"The rye grain is prominent here with a touch of greenness to it along with the oak and barrel spices, but the fruits from the red wine barrels appear on the mild side. There's a little nutty aroma as well as vanilla to be found and the red fruits show up slightly more if you let the glass sit for a few minutes. On the palate the whiskey is medium full and slightly tannic. It's full of rye spice and tangy flavors and a warm feeling in your chest. Would recommend adding just a touch of water to soften the whiskey as well as allow a touch of sweetness to appear. Overall, a pleasant whiskey to drink especially if you prefer your drams on the tangy, spicy side."
