Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Zesty aromas of candied orange peel, honeysuckle, brown sugar and medicinal herbs on the nose lead into a complex, yet fruit-filled palate punctuated by a sweet, smoky salinity. Very graceful. The finish is long and very smooth. (Apr 2014)
Hochstadterâ€™s has a mellow, slightly sweet flavor â€“ the notes of spicy rye are nicely balanced with the sweet flavors of citrus and rock candy. Bottled at a hearty 98 proof, it has a smooth, long finish with hints of honey and orange.
