Member Ratings and Notes
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.
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.
Grainy, lots of flavor, very loud. Spicy. Cinnammon. Long, long cinnammon finish.
I taste licorice. Cinammon, spice nose. Paprika-y. Cut down with water, it resembles cheap tequila in the mouth.
Nose is spice, cinnamon. Taste is numbing, medicinal. Finish is strong, lingering. Best neat. Water gives a Tequilla esque taste.
