Tasting Notes

"The rye grain is hearty on the nose along with a pleasant green grape aroma, oak, and vanilla. There's a touch of that green/raw grain here as well. As you taste the whiskey you'll find it has a peppery bite, but perhaps is less sweet than the nose proposed. The whiskey is moderately full and robust as well as dry, but not too dry. Add a splash of water to smooth out a few rough edges. The finish of the Sauternes wine is a pleasant one which makes this whiskey a solid nightcap. "
