Tasting Notes

"At this proof, the rye is a little prickly on the nose, but you still pick up the char notes along with some caramel and vanilla. There's a little something like twine and Sharpie marker aromas as well. The body is on the medium-light side, and it's warm on your palate at this proof. It's a little hollow in the middle but still shows its classic cherry fruit. Finish is bittersweet. Best served in a cocktail."
