NOSE: Caramel apples, hints of leather with light plumes of mint. Light oak.
PALATE: Mellow at first, then bursts of baking spice and vanilla. Moderate viscosity.
FINISH: Long and warm. Spicy yet mellow with pleasant oak flavors.
OVERALL: This is an excellent rye that is perfect neat or in premium cocktails. Complex yet balanced between young and old rye notes and its Bottled-In-Bond designation makes this a very special and unique barrel. Neat sippers may want to try this with a drop of water for an overall boost to its character.
