"Missing the expected spice and sweet notes of a quality rye whiskey, this is unpleasantly dominated by herbaceous aromas including lavender and dill, and strong fault notes of menthol and camphor. The palate adds sage and basil plus a hint of pepper. A touch of traditional rye flavors emerges on the finish with baking spices and leather."
