Russet in color, with rich oaky aromas. The taste is exceptionally smooth, with hints of vanilla, honey, and spice. Finish is crisp and clean, with long, lingering flavors.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Bright and buttery, this rye has a warm, malty scent and mellow flavors of cookie dough and juicy lemon, interspersed with just the right amount of rye bite. - K.N. (Jul 2013)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - (Tried & True Award)- Cherry and spice on the nose.This is a big and spicy rye, but also fruity, with cherries and stonefruit. Nicely astringent finish that goes on for a good long time. (Mar 2015)
