Oha, the first smell like a rum. Sweet and fruity and really smokey, vanilla, oak and spices, sweet. Rum :) ... ok, a little bit of grain is still coming, but it really does not smell like whiskey or rye. Also in the mouth is the first association with rum, quite good rum. Then a bit more pepper and oak, but always the Rumassziation in the head. The finish is sweet, minty, oak and long and something tart, herbal.
Well, I do not know if my nose plays a nasty trick for me today, but that's rum and not a rye. Topic missed? Anyway, the stuff is delicious and definitely recommended.
