Member Ratings and Notes
Adam
 
Smells like a spice cabinet with lots of cinnamon and a bit of steak seasoning.  Tastes spicy and very bold.  Long and enjoyable finish with waves of strong rye.  A bit hot but don't add water. 
AS
 
Big and spicy, bold rye in a pungent nose but with sweet cinnamon undertones.  Heavy alcohol, big and chewy in the mouth, hot.  Adding water is a bad idea, gives it a tequila-like quality.

Subtle Tequila nose. Crisp, earthy, hint of charcoal. Finishes hot. Perhaps I don't have a taste for rye yet? (This was early in my whiskey explorations, and I suspect I would like it better now.   I will re-taste when I get a chance)

This is rye! Strong nose, a finish that lasts and lasts - easily over a minute. Various tastes of licorice, cloves, cinnamon, and a touch of fine tequila. Light in color. Very enjoyable.
GL
 
Grainy, lots of flavor, very loud.  Spicy.  Cinnammon.  Long, long cinnammon finish.
JH
 
I taste licorice.  Cinammon, spice nose.  Paprika-y.  Cut down with water, it resembles cheap tequila in the mouth. 
JS
 
Nose is spice, cinnamon.  Taste is numbing, medicinal.  Finish is strong, lingering.  Best neat.  Water gives a Tequilla esque taste.
