Golden amber color. Perfumed aromas and flavors of spiced bananas, vanilla, sliced lemon, crystallized violet, and caraway-rye toast with a satiny, vibrant, dryish light body and a tingling, amusing, medium-long finish with suggestions of spearmint and grapefruit zest finish. A joyous Whiskey that lifts the palate with perfumed and spicy flavors; an apéritif Whiskey to sip neat or enjoy in a classic highball.

Distilled from Rye Mash Whiskey is a relatively arcane category, taking into effect only a few American whiskies with a bourbon mash bill but aged in barrels that are not new white American oak; these may have other non traditional aging or processing. Examples tend to be less complex than true bourbons, but these products can be crowd pleasers.
