Tasting Notes

"Look up "rye whiskey" in the dictionary and this should be what comes up first because it's one of the most rye-ish whiskeys out there. It really smells and tastes like rye bread, with maybe more spice (sweet baking ones as well as peppery) on the palate. It's balanced by sweeter flavors and subtle oakiness. Really great drop for the price point."
