"The rye really comes through on this high-proof bourbon from Lux, offering a bold clove spice and mild medicinal note alongside rich vanilla and cherrywood. The finish is sweet and warming, and while it certainly brings some heat, it's smoother than one might expect for 118.2 proof. A few drops of water will help open it up, bringing out softer, nuttier notes."
