Tasting Notes

"For a young whiskey, there aren't unpleasant aromas, but there is a surprisingly large amount of dried herbs and five spice powder. That is something to expect in a gin, but not necessarily in a rye. There is a nice sweetness here, but not enough of a rough and dark quality most ryes typically bring. "
