Nose: Standard rye nose. Heavy spice. Some dusty peanuts are present as well, along with mild alcohol.
Palate: More of that spice continues. Some wheaty notes, such as a whole wheat bread appear. The rye spice is definitely present.
Finish: This burns going down. The flavor lingers in the back of your throat.
Overall, this is a pretty good rye for the money. Still not at the level of Rittenhouse or Sazerac, but decent. Definitely more suited for cocktails, as the burn makes sipping difficult.
Overall: There is a lot of competition in the <$25.00 range, if this was $20 dollars or less I'd grab it all day, but as it approaches the $25 mark I feel like it doesn't have the depth of flavor to compete. All the same, it is a straight ahead enjoyable rye.
Nose: Pumpernickel bread that morphs into a sugary spice.
Palate: A nice medium mouthfeel, with plenty of rye spice up front, but quickly follows up with a sugary bubblegum esq flavor.
Finish: medium in length, but with a great exhale flavor of woody malt.
On the nose: Spice and vanilla
Palate: A hint of that sweet vanilla at the start but it's a rye- it's punches pretty quickly with that spice mid/late palate with a hint of apple or stone fruit.
Finish: A longer than expected finish of spice that lingers on the tongue.
Overall a really approachable rye, it has the strength to stand up in a cocktail.
Definitely picking up the nutmeg with hints of cinnamon. Dare I say notes of banana nut bread? Yes, I believe so and maybe a slight tease of black licorice. All in all, a tasty rye and easy on the wallet at just under $30. I would buy it again.
