Member Ratings and Notes

This has a great high-rye nose with sandalwood and wood polish; it's much more similar to an old Pennsylvania rye than an LDI (which is also a rye/barley mashbill). The palate also has that sandalwood note as well as some pepper. It's very spicy and pretty dry, having just a touch of sweetness. It's a nicely done rye and fairly distinct from anything on the market today.



initially intense and bright rye spice (cinnamon, all-spice, and dill). Quite dry and mineral. Bitter tannic note in the middle that fades quickly enough to sweet custard and heavy oak. Flavour is more intense and compartmentalized, but creates and fun "thinking" rye. I like the full body.
