    This is a very tricky rye. On the nose, there are strong fruit notes with raspberry, green apple, and a very light citrusy orange peel. Alongside the fruit notes, there are strong vanilla notes alongside really light floral notes, caramel, clove, pepper, and a rye breadiness. On the nose, this rye would not appear to be the spiciest despite having 65% rye in the mash bill. The taste is really sweet for a rye which helps bring out the vanilla and fruit notes. If you are craving a sweet, fruity whiskey this is a good go-to. The lighter notes get buried on the taste other than the floral notes, which helps to complement the fruitiness of this rye. The finish is where the normal rye notes reappear as the pepper rises up through on the medium-long finish. This really has some nice complexity for the price and I highly recommend.

    Sweet brown sugar nose. Some burn, but pretty drinkable for a 100 proof rye.

    Smells like a typical rye, but then bourbon sweetness notes come into a very light play. The initial taste is very refreshing, with the rye being light and building. Bourbon sweetness punches you right in the middle, and finally the proof becomes apparent with a spicy, full finish. Great versatile rye, so long as you're not craving that incredibly spicy, 100% rye flavor.
