General description

Lowish 43% proof is made up by the stirring spice that wakes up the tongue, 100% rye showing the floral spice off compared to Rittenhouse 51% rye which is sweeter rounder w more viscous mouthfill. Yummy and anti-boring this 100% rye.

Finish strength: Medium
Color: Russetmuscat

General description

deep rich colour with mild to moderate oil content (legs)

Nose

oak wood shavings and a sweet fruit, almost red Apple, like gala, but less spikey with a faint pickle in the background.

Palate

light dill pickle at first that is quickly overtaken by black pepper and oak barrel

Finish

has a mild to moderate linger of oak barrel, and dill pickle that transforms over time into sweet butter pickle in the background of the oak

General description

Rye is a spicy whiskey by nature. A bit rough around the edges, and not a full as it could be. Still, worth the $$

Lovely nose which promises more than it's yet able to give. Reminiscent of a slightly older Dad's Hat.
