Nose: A straightforward and somewhat unimpressive aroma out of the gate. Faint notes of gingerbread and hay work well against the aroma’s heavier caramel and rye grain scents.
Palate: An enjoyable display of classic rye notes are present with the notable omission of cinnamon. Its rye grain, caramel, and kettle corn notes don’t reinvent the wheel, but they perform well together. Its most noteworthy trait is a veil of creaminess that envelopes the palate bringing forth a delicious lemon note.
Finish: A mildly dry, oaky, and caramel aftertaste rides this whiskey to completion. Mid-finish some interchangeably sweet and spicy notes pop in the form of cherry, lemon cookie, and rye spice flavors. They don’t stick around for very long but are welcomed and help elevate this finish a notch. Its heat carries with you as does its overall dryness.
Cheers, and enjoy this whiskey!
