Tasting Notes

"The nose is slightly grassy with added woodiness from barrel aging that does not add additional vanilla. Wood tends to overwhelm caramel and vanilla on the palate but does emphasize the pepperiness that characterizes rye. There's a slight smoky quality on a finish that ushers in the previously suppressed caramel."
