4.0 out of 5 stars
Taste- 2 oz neat in rocks glass at Cornerstone Tap in Lemont IL.
Nose- sweet candied orange, baker's chocolate, all-spice, and clove.
Palate is rich with a deliciously good viscosity. This is one to really sink your teeth into. Upon entry I get a big pop of spice which then quickly is balanced by sweeter fruit flavors, maple sugar, and candied orange chocolate almost like the fruit jellys you get in a World's Finest Assortment box. There is also something herbal going on as well, like musty black tea or perhaps some drying tobacco. Its a nice sip.
Finish- is long and perhaps a tad too sweet. Definately get the rum here. It lingers on the palate and then fades to milk chocolate.
Overall- this is a delicious finished rye. It has a lot going on. Sweet, herbal, spicy, rich are all words that come to mind. Here is the rub though- is it that much better or different than Angel's Envy Finished Rye? My answer in a word- no. I did not find $400 of anything better vs AE finished rye. I found a tad more punch, a few more layers, but it was in that ball park. I was lucky to run into a bar or bartender who didnt know what they had, or was simply being overly kind to a customer at $25.00 for a 2 oz. neat pour. I wouldnt splurge for anything more above that price to be honest. Good dram? Yes. A have to have? No
