2016 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

Hochstadter's Vatted Straight Rye Whiskey (United States), 50% abv, $34.99

85
Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Note:

Spicy orange peel, baked cherry cobbler, cinnamon stick, and black pepper aromas rise from the glass. The palate is juicy, yet with a spicy rye kick, that is balanced by baked apricot, wild cherry, and a hint of sweet spice.
