Aroma - Pepper, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice. Quite a nice balance and blend of each. There’s a nice fresh baked apple pie and caramel backbone here which I really wasn’t expecting creating a bit more intrigue and complexity. Oak is subtle. Man for $35, this is aroma is very good. Very nice complexity.
Taste - (slow head nod). Really liking this… a lot. This is drinking above its price tag and that is always a huge plus for me.
I remember growing up, my mom used to make fresh rye bread. This reminds me so much of that. Nostalgia.
Getting more of the same spices on the palate here and even a slight cocoa powder. Apple pie again comes to mind.
It has a medium finish and some sips finish longer than others.
Overall - Sweet & Spicy…this is one of the best values at its price point. Kudos to Smooth Ambler for producing a really damn good rye at the $35-40 price point.
Excellent for the price; was looking for something over 100 proof for under $40 and I was pleasantly surprised. I’d describe it as having a rather light body, with a lot of good notes I’m not experienced enough to identify.
I am partial to this brand being from WV but that didn’t impact my rating. Has a strong cinnamon nose with some fruity ness. On the pallet you get that cinnamon from the nose and a slightly sweet initially and then you get the rye spice like peeper on the back end. I really liked this and for the price it’s a good everyday Rye drinker.
