This stuff is just so enjoyable. Punch you in the face spice from start to finish. It's kinda like Parker Beam says (or maybe Larry Kass says it about Parker), he doesn't taste cinnamon or honey or anything like that, he just tastes bourbon. Well, this tastes like Rye. And I know its good.
A big rye attack! Spicy! But theres molasses sweetness mixed with herbal qualities. Smells of big red cinnamon chewing gum! Much more oak and woody notes on the palate. Layers of spices (cinnamon and cloves) followed by dark over extracted tea bitterness and licorice. Long finish that sticks to the palate.
Herbaceous and grassy. The rye spice is aggressive and concentrated. Great waxy rye spice with woody herbal root stalk notes. Lingering finish. B+
