"The nose is full of aromas such as apple skins, sweet vanilla, and gentle barrel spices. There's a touch of char smoke as well. Moving on to the taste, the rye is tangy with a bit of chewiness. Leather, cinnamon, and a touch of orange peel are added to the flavors found on the nose. The finish is on the tart and bitter side. A tasty rye and one that will please those that prefer their whiskeys to be on the bittersweet rather than the full on sweet side. Another classic from Wild Turkey. "
