Dark amber color. Aromas and flavors of dense chocolate cake, molasses, eucalyptus honey, black licorice, gingersnap cookies, and maple-walnut creme with a chewy, crisp, dry medium-to-full body and a silky, engaging, medium-length finish displaying accents of fresh sourdough scone. A bold, chewy, in-your-face Rye Whiskey; a powerful potable.
