"Starting with a rich caramelly rye, this whiskey has a lovely sweet, dark char that is contrasted nicely by candied ginger and orange peels. The mouthfeel is slightly oily with delicate sugar. It reminds a bit of sweet granola with toasted pecans, like breakfast. It finishes spicy but well balanced; not too hot and with a dry, creamy finish."
