    "Triticale, a single grain developed in Scotland in the late 1800s is a hybrid of wheat and rye" and it tastes like it.

    It has the sweetness of a wheater and just a little of the spicy edge of rye. Maybe a touch of chocolate too.

    I noticed that when this gets more than 20 minutes of air, the pepper drops off a cliff and leaves a bit of a gap in the profile.

    The spice in the tail covers some light bitterness and when it's gone, that bitterness is a bit too apparent, especially when contrasting the wheat- like sweetness and syrupy fruit that hits first.

    It's not overpowered, but it breaks the flow of what otherwise is a very easy sipper, with enough personality to be interesting.

    I can't help thinking that a couple more percentage points on the ABV would boost the spice to make the whiskey that much bolder and less likely to lose that spice kick to the air.

    However, I did enjoy this sample and it has left me curious to taste more from the distillery and from the triticale grain.
