      fresh resinous wood in the sun, butter crisp, oranges, gingerbread, honey - some glue remains even if it airs long
    • Taste
      65 65
      superficially sweet, very soapy, a little orange, cheap lemonade, glue on the palate - without water, it's definitely too hot
    • Finish
      65 65
      dry, sweet and soapy - with and without water just not tasty

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 67 points Connoisseur

    Very aromatic and soft on nose, unusual cola sweet syrup with asian
    spices of caraway, cinnamon, tinge of beautiful grassiness.

    P- Copper, pink peppercorn. It is less sharp and spicy as I think, heavy and rich mouthfeel.

    F- Short, absinthe like, sweet spices lingers.

  3. wheatfield scored this whisky 50 points Expert Junior

    Pour is a light copper. Nose is noticeably young rye spirit, approaching vodka. Some wood spice restores the rye sentiment. Botanicals, some caramel candies. Mouth is really thing, watery, and how in the back. There are some decent clove, juniper and caramel flavors going on. I hadn't expected much but I expected better -- brighter flavors and less vodka at least.

    Edit -- struggling to work my way through the bottle. This is only getting worse. Old garbage has become a theme with this rye. It sucks, and for some reason it was over $50.
