"This whiskey from KROBĀR has the spice one desires in a cask strength rye, but it's also very nicely balanced. The palate brings out notes of vanilla, banana, cinnamon, and leather, leading to a warming finish with a bit of white pepper and fresh cut wood. This is craft whiskey done right, and it's a bold rye that's worth picking up."
