Tasting Notes

"This is a light rye all around: color, body, and proof, coming at 83. That makes it easy to sip, hitting the palate with fruity notes of bubblegum and banana, a little vanilla, and a pleasant brown sugar sweetness. It's an approachable, summery rye, ideal for those seeking a lighter American whiskey."
