"There's no mistaking the rye character on this rye, as the grain's spice comes through assertively on both the nose and palate. It's backed by vanilla and white pepper, and a little bit tart, with a fragrance reminiscent of wine cellar and fresh-cut wood. It's distinctive, but possibly also divisive, leaning toward the aggressive side of rye."
