"Here’s something to check your pulse. An unabashed nose of white pepper, dill, horseradish, and brine. The dill and brine carry over to the palate making big splashes with wood spices. Although amongst these boisterous flavors, some sweet rye is sandwiched in the mid-palate. The spices crackle like fire long into the finish. Take a big pull of this after a few rounds of over-the-barrel arm wrestling."
