  1. numen scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    For what it is, it's really just loads of fun and is remarkably easy to
    like. This is really the sweet-spot, in a manner of speaking, for rye
    whiskies that aren't high-proof. It has that touch of grain and wood,
    and a lot of sweetness, and the alcohol never interferes. I'm really
    torn on scoring/grading this because, for what it is, it's just so
    enjoyable when you want something sweet and non-challenging. If you
    really want something with complexity, it'll leave you wanting a bit.
    That is, it's got its place.
    • Nose
      Immediately, but lightly, on rye grain, sweet and dry cinnamon. It's
      pure rock-candy. The clean sugary goodness supplemented with soft, fresh
      wood and sawdust. A little varnish comes out with air, but it's all
      very refreshing. There's also some menthol and anise. Not terribly
      complicated, but it smells delicious.
    • Taste
      A little rye spice and a full dose of the grain with a measure of soft
      cinnamon. A little sandal wood and cedar - and more of that pure, sugary
      rock candy. Very brief peppery spice on the entry, but goes more for
      the sweet: direct and simple.
    • Finish
      Very short, which is a little disappointing, but this is incredibly
      drinkable. It is liquid candy. Fairly simple and straightforward on the
      whole, it just does those few things very well and is fun and easy to
      drink.
