Wine Enthusiast 94 points - Ripe apricot, orange marmalade and toasted oats open up for a delightful bouquet. Rich, slightly honeyed, with a touch of grainy sweetness balanced by toasted earth and ripe apricot. Toasted finish which lingers nicely on the palate.
Complex and dry, with a shifting array of aromas and flavors. At first, this rye smelled spicy and orange-y, but later opened up to a strong caramel fragrance. In addition to heavy wood in the flavor, caramel, dark tea, and tobacco also can be detected. Light, smooth finish is velvety on the tongue. Light to medium body, with the right amount of bite. Seems like a good rye for Sazeracs and other cocktails.
