Tasting Notes

"The nose is full of young, raw grain. Lots of honey, hops, and apple cider. It's shocking at first but calms down after it sits in the glass for a while. In the mouth, it's obviously a very young spirit, white pepper spicy and juicy, with toffee, apples, grass, and bitter mint. Overall, it's a rye that manages to make its lack of age work in its favor. "
