Tasting Notes

"A hearty, muscular rye from Wheel Horse showing good balance. The aromas are weighted with spice and grilled meat, then tempered with a nice lavender note in the background. The palate opens with rich helping of bread crust and caramel and ends with a strong ginger note, coating evenly from front to back. Good choice in a Manhattan."
