Tasting Notes

"The all-rye mash-bill is clear in the robust, dark rye nose. Sweet spices and black tea are present along with rosemary and mint. More of this continues on the palate and while the body is smooth, it is not especially oily or rich. There's a cleanness to this rye that feels like the whiskey has had its classic rugged notes turned down; like switching guitars on a rock song from electric to acoustic."
