Tasting Notes

"This is a fruity style of rye, with sweet tropical flavors almost akin to juicy fruit flavor gum. It's balanced by the rye trifecta of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, ending in a vanilla finish. Pleasant to taste a youngish micro distillery rye that doesn't taste too green or hot, but ends smoothly."
