Full on rye spice and pep. Cedar cigar boxes and a lovely peppery tingle. Fruit comes in, apples and pears cooked down and served with almond flakes, toasted and chocolate laden granola.
Palate
Huge spices, with layers of cloves, pepper and cinnamon. Then a deep rich molasses depth, dark treacle toffees and just a hint of smoke.
Finish
Sweetness with honey madeleine cakes and those spices. Just keeps giving.
Comment
Shows how wonderful rye can be. Sweet and spice vying for attention.

Just what you expect from a rye. Straight off the bat; spice and a peppery tang. Gets a little funky with some floral hits.
Palate
Again, just what you would expect from a rye. Cinnamon, pepper, it all just lines up and waits to shake you by the hand. A faint ash hangs around the roof of your mouth, but balances nicely.
Finish
More and more of the spice. A little bit like an iced cinnamon bun.
Comment
Doesn't shock, but why should it? Just straight forward rye whiskey that delivers on its promises.
