Tasting Notes

"Who needs Luxardo cherries when you can just huff this rye? Thick, dark syrupy fruit mingles with peppermint notes before fading to pepper. Bold, intense spices come through like a bundle of cinnamon sticks right on your tongue. It tastes the way fragrant holiday decorations smell--like those spicy bunches of woody pinecones and sticks were distilled down into a bottle."
