Haven’t had a pour of this for 8 months...found it in the WAY back of the collection...and for good reason. I must have told myself THEN that i liked this so much...hide it in the back so i don’t finish the bottle! This is an easy sipper, especially for a rye. The nose is invitingly sweet. Rich and sweet on the tongue, also leaving your lips with the sweet taste. There is a mild spice, but no burn. Mouth left feeling a bit dry, which compels you to go in for another sip!
