88
Very Good,
Strong Recommendation

Tasting Notes:

This is such an approachable and friendly rye with tangy green apple alongside spicy, grassy rye articulation. On the mouth, the brightness of the grain is matched with sweet licorice and mace. The light age allows for the more playful butteriness of this whiskey to remain buoyant and unfettered.
