Amber color. Aromas of spiced plums, ginger-peach tea, toasted sesame, and peppermint with an lively, dryish medium-to-full body and a very complex, endless sweet berries, star anise, chocolate shavings, fresh buttered croissant, nutmeg, hints of olives, and marcona almonds finish. A completely delicious Rye Whiskey with exceptional balance and length; skillfully crafted and braggably stylish.
