Amber color. Aromas and flavors of moist bran muffin, peach and raisin oatmeal cookie, chocolate lime mint bar, and kaffir and cinnamon bark with a satiny, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, interesting, medium-long finish that exhibits accents of lemon mint tea in a copper kettle, manuka honey spiced glazed nuts, chile-infused maple syrup on buckwheat pancakes, and wet lava rocks. A robust and focused BiB Rye with boatloads of classic minty, grainy, tea-like rye flavors that will sing in cocktails; incredibly engaging.
