Tasting Notes

"Dark Northern rye was reportedly brought to Washington by Scandinavian settlers. Appropriately enough, this whiskey distilled from it is reminiscent of the kind of dark rye bread one might find on the table in a Nordic restaurant. It's delightfully roasty and a little bit spicy, with just enough time in barrel to be enjoyably sipped neat."
