"Kooper Family Rye is an interesting expression of rye whiskey's more herbal tendencies. On the nose, a sturdy cocoa power aroma is complimented by peppermint and toasted corn. On first sip, the mint is joined by black pepper and roasted almonds. From from to back, the palate is punctuated with dark, dry barrel tannin, which should help it to hold well with sweeter mixers."
