Amber color. Aromas and flavors of banana muffins, marzipan, spiced apple butter, black olives, and bay leaf with a slightly chewy, crisp, dry medium-to-full body and a peppery, delightful, medium-long finish that shows notes of prunes, leather, dark chocolate, and peppercorns. A robust Rye Whiskey with big oak notes and green, herbaceous nuance.
