Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Attractive bronze color; pure. First inhalations detect rye bread, caraway seeds and pepper; then the nose turns marginally sweeter. On palate, there’s a succulence that’s seductive and delicately sweet while being savory.
This amber whiskey is made with 95% rye, which puts it on the very high-rye side of the spectrum, and gives it a spicy zip. In some ways, this evokes an ultradry version of an orange liqueur, with juicy orange notes dusted with black pepper, clove, nutmeg and a faint hoppy note.
