Tasting Notes

Nose

Pungent edgy citrus laced oak with hints of mandarin and orange followed by thick corn and light gingery spiced rye. The oak becomes monumentally thick but citrus keeps it fresh. Very impressive.

Palate

Slightly smoky with big, chunky oak. The citrus and alcohol balance and hints of corn, earth and spicy rye follow. The rye becomes herbal and the intensity is once again impressive. \n

Finish

Long and very spicy as the rye, blows through the oak and corn. Very earthy and lightly oiled after-taste. \n

Comment

This is seriously intense and seriously impressive!
