Nose: Rich caramel, bright ginger and lingering menthol hints, with more herbaceous touches developing with the robust rye notes. A good core of oak spice, too.
Palate: Traditional rye spiciness, rich and mouth-coating, but not as overpowering as some other rye whiskey. Instead, there’s more development of the vanilla, brown sugar and soft butter notes.
Finish: Drying oak, white pepper and rye spice last on the finish.
