Amber color. Aromas of chocolate-covered toffee and popcorn with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dryish medium body and a graceful, interesting, medium-length corn cakes, caraway, and seasoned rye crisps finish. A mild-mannered, very smooth Rye Whiskey that will play well neat, on the rocks and in a manhattan.
