Tasting Notes

"Oftentimes, rye whiskeys hit you over the head with charred wood spice and vanilla. This doesn't rush in like an anxious teenager getting lucky, but more like a seasoned gentleman taking his time. There is a slight herbaceous note on the palate, but the whisky is more about rye spices and leather and has a pleasant amount of vanilla and toffee. "
