Nose: Allspice and cocoa, caramel and more herbal notes. Tremendous rye intensity with caramel an ever present.
Palate: Thick and warming, honeyed cereals, vanilla and cinnamon.
Finish: Pepper and hints of hazelnut.
Overall: An extraordinary union of old and young and of high rye content and barely legal (not much above 51%) whiskeys. Spicy and sublime.
