Straight Rye Whiskey

Category: Straight Rye Whisky

Date Tasted:

Amber color. Aromas and flavors of peppermint, hints of caramel latte, raisin toast, clove, and soy-seasoned nuts with a supple, crisp, dryish full body and a tingling, snappy finish with notes of dark chocolate chips and black licorice. A rich and chewy Rye Whiskey that will work well in classic cocktails.
