General description

nose is rye without the usual heavy dill aroma. taste is EARTHY, like the smell of a humid, mossy forest after a thunderstorm on a hot day. Very interesting whiskey, but wouldn't recommend for first time trying rye. overpriced

General description

Very earthy taste (dirt, mushrooms, green wood, etc...). Not at all like the distiller's tasting notes. Did I get a bad nip?

General description

Wonderfully sweet nose of maple syrup and honey, with a faint grassy, biting afternote. Very warm, pleasing taste with a high, strong burn. Extremely minimal finish.

a little dill, a little grassy, and a lot of long lingering rye spice. notes of vanilla and caramel. one of the longest finishes I've found in a rye... very nice, very pricey...

Finish

long long long
