"This young firecracker of a rye starts out with a note of raw sawdust, indicating relatively short aging time, and apple smoke. The youth makes itself even more apparent in the palate, with raw wood and hot alcoholic notes. Instead of apple, the cherry makes itself known on the mid-palate, along with the malty sweetness. The biscuity malt fades to the back on the finish, but leaves a bit of an unpleasant bitterness at the very end. Copper Fox Original Rye Whiskey has good bones to it, but needs more time in the barrel."
