    Incredibly competent stuff. Basically exactly what I am looking for in a non-cask strength American whiskey and can’t seem to find enough of (that suits my palate just right like this). Easy going but not exactly light. Mellow but packed with flavor. Spicy, sweet, nice fruits. The oak on the nose is a little young tasting, but that’s a minor nitpick.
    • Nose
      Sweet, honeyed, with a definite strong grassy note. Brown sugar. A sprinkling of pepper and cinnamon. Easy going, some orchard fruits
    • Taste
      Some oak. Can taste the grains strong in here. Really nice and pleasant. Grassy and sweet. Honey. Basically what was in the nose. That’s nice. More orchard fruits, more intense than in the nose. Tons of green apple. Delicious mint coming in. More pepper, more overall rye spice.
    • Finish
      Browned butter, apple pie with cinnamon. Green apples. Touch of lemongrass. Black tea. Surprisingly long finish. Lots of rye and black pepper here, but not overwhelmingly spicy.
