Nose: Rustic notes of oak and fruit, a little menthol. Slightly grassy, followed by sweeter notes of toffee and classic vanilla.
Palate: Oak spices, pepper and even some chillies. Needles to say, it's rather spicy. Deep inside you'll find a little treasure cove of sweetness, but then it's back to the savoury notes from the nose.
Finish: The heat continues from the palate (how could it not?) with fresh oak and tea leaves.
Overall: A surprising rye whiskey, unique and very enjoyable.
