Tasting Notes

"This high-rye bourbon offers up a spicy herbal nose with aromas of cinnamon, anise, clove, and oregano, with bold corn and caramel notes, as well as hints of dill and dusty wood. Spice dominates the taste with lots of baking spice flavors, followed by subtle undertones of fennel, dill and mint before giving way to sweet vanilla caramels. The whiskey lingers with a sweet and spicy finish of vanilla, caramel and big spices of ginger, black pepper and clove. Although bold and youthful, this whiskey is uncharacteristically complex for its age, and a great value for the price. "
