    Quite Bourbon-like with a fruity touch and massive liquorice
    • Nose
      88 88
      Liquorice galore, hints of charred oak and vanilla, spices, cinnamon, cloves, black tea, acacia honey, whiffs of smoke, orange zest, backberry jam - not bad
    • Taste
      89 89
      Punchy, creamy, good sweetness, honey, more liquorice, spices, charred oak, vanilla, orange peel, old books, newspaper, woody, little smoky, fruit tea - really not bad
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, burning, spicy, herbal, more old books - some water recommended

    ... best Rye i had so far ...
    • Nose
      ... sweet and full of orange blossom honey. There are also beeswax and a sweet black tea as well as cereals and malt candies, which provide cereal-like sweetness.
    • Taste
      .. spicy, freshly brewed black tea. Kumquats and molasses create a harmonious, bittersweet note, which is accompanied by the sweetness of licorice bats.
    • Finish
      ... medium length with woody tones and Earl Gray tea in the aftertaste. Honey and malt remain on the palate. delicious.
