Tasting Notes

"Easily one of the most unique and memorable rye whiskeys on the market, this George Dickel Rye sings of spicy herbaceous notes of eucalyptus, spearmint, dill, clove and white pepper followed by a hazel-nuttiness and hints of dried berries. The flavor is admittedly dry and spicy with a notable herbal profile reminiscent of the nose. This rye is not only great as a sipping tipple, but also a perfect base for a cocktail that features herbs like tarragon, mint, dill and rosemary. The finishes dry and spicy as expected with hints of white pepper, dill, and a whiff of delicate smoke."
