    Nose - (w/o water) Spicy hot cinnamon nose, dark vanilla caramel, toasted toffee, light black pepper & herbal notes, hint of oaky leather (w/ water) Greatly reduced heat/burn, oaky vanilla, charred cinnamon, not as sweet smelling, dark vanilla caramels, charred herb stems Taste - (w/o water) Tannic/oaky hot cinnamon heat/tingle, sweet vanilla, light oaky bitterness, spicy cinnamon caramels, light dry herbal sweet (w/ water) Still tannic/dry, charred cinnamon sticks, leather, light vanilla caramel sweetness, spicy cinnamon heat Finish - (w/o water) Lingering dry/tannic oaky heat, bitter charred cinnamon, oaky vanilla simple (w/ water) Lingering tingle, slightly less bitter, oaky charred cinnamon, vanilla caramels, oaked simple. Score - 71/100 Final Thoughts - This was hot right out of the bat. The nose was oaky ethanol heat & that lingered to the taste & finish too. This tasted like a slightly overoaked overproof rye to me. It didn't seem to pick up many complexities of a fruity sweet or herbal notes I get in other ryes. This was straight up charred cinnamon, leather, with hints of vanilla caramels. I don't think this one was very well balanced and I think it was a bit overoaked for only being 10 years of age. Would I drink it if offered? - Maybe Would I specifically order it? - No Would I buy a bottle? - No

    What happened to all those GREAT SAOS Barrel Proof Ryes!? These guys got em and jacked up the price... fortunately they’re still 1/3 of what SAOS goes for on the secondary...

    Great whiskey. Full body and very smooth for a rye. Lots of fruit with sweetness and earthy spice.
