Tasting Notes

"This rye doesn’t waste anytime establishing whopping rye spices that are leathery and a little smoky. Maple, oak, ripe fruit, rye bread and some vanilla are swept up by a spicy current with a petite floral touch. Yes, this rye brute will give you roses. The rye spice finish rises from a purr to a roar with plum jam notes waiting at the finish line. "
