Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

Introduced by a layered nose of toasted cinnamon stick, graham cracker, sweet corn cake, and dried herbs, this may be the prototypical rye. On tasting, the whiskey starts out sweet slathered by toasted vanilla tones before switching gears to a blast of black pepper spice.
