James Oliver American Rye
Indio Spirits // (bottled in Oregon), USA
Oats are oddly found on the nose, with additional notes of cream, peppery rye bread, and lots of bitter orange. Cherry blossom, rosewater, and cloves soon follow suit. There's a sharp alcohol kick as it goes into the mouth, and a big rye spice with caramel, saltwater taffy, and seaweed. A splash of water brings out more toffee and cherry.
