The 8-year-old Koval Rye Quarter Cask Wood Finish was first matured in American oak wood barrels and then underwent an additional maturation period in organic rye quarter casks from Chicago’s Koval Distillery.

"First impression is porridge with honey, accompanied by a touch of oak shavings, ripe banana, nutmeg and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is a tad thin, yet somewhat oily. Fairly spicy. Think cloves and ginger, with a touch of cinnamon and black pepper. While a bit of an odd duck, it is a very interesting concoction."
