Nose
Toasty and buttery oak with clean corn, wood spice and herbal rye. A well-hidden orange note but a serious oak fest!
Palate
A touch more edgy with citric spirit character and hints of earth, dark rye and spice. Oak on the middle, silky and buttery but the rye has the edge giving it better balance.
Finish
Long and earthy with lingering rye, sweet oak, corn syrup and dark chocolate.
Comment
A brilliant rye. If the nose had the clarity and intensity of the rye that the palate did, it would be running for Editor's Choice.

Nose
Soft and gentle, not something you'd normally give credit to for a rye whiskey. It slowly gives you Bovril, beef brisket and a full on Texan BBQ.
Palate
Creamy and balanced, there are spices that give a base for the more ethereal notes of spirit and sugar. It's an odd mix but one that works well for this style of whisky.
Finish
The oak and spice balance is well worked.
Comment
I ended up mixing this into a cocktail and it worked very well.
