Amber color. Aromas of chocolate chip cookie dough, oatmeal with cinnamon and raisins, ripe melon, vanilla-maple, and tellicherry peppercorns with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a nuanced, medium-long molasses cake, eucalyptus honey, dark chocolate, and caraway finish. A dense and spicy Rye that delivers piles of dark, brooding flavor.
