After the solid Farmstock Crop 003, I’ve been looking forward to its predecessor. I’ll give the breakdown for this like I did the last one: 32% 2 year-old Vermont Rye; 45% Indiana 6-year old Indiana Rye; 10-year old Canadian Rye. Nose: Rye spice and baking soda. Gala apple. Dill. Caramel and vanilla. Pistachio, peppermint, and maybe just a hint of mint chocolate. Woody, nutty notes. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and oak. Solid nose. Palate: Caramel and Gala apple. Black pepper and rye spice. More of the woody, nutty notes. Pistachio, toasted almond, and walnut. A touch of cola. Clove, nutmeg, and oak. Finish: Pistachio Baking soda. Dill, rye spice, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and oak. Short-moderate finish. The nose was solid. The palate and finish didn’t quite hit the mark. A little disappointed in this one compared to Crop 003. It’s a not bad whiskey. Perfectly drinkable, and very pleasant. But it does nothing to stoke the imagination, and a $60 price tag drops the score a quarter star. 3/5.
