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.

Tasting Notes

"This 100% rye whiskey is sourced from an undisclosed distiller. It's aged four years in barrels that have received the deep, dark "alligator hide" char #4 then bottled by Indio Spirits in Portland, Oregon. "
