The nose is light with nice rye notes and vanilla. The palate has bold rye spice, juniper, then some sweetness. It's strong for the abv. The finish turns a bit bitter with gin notes and some cotton candy sweetness in the background; the bitterness lingers, almost like an amaro. I'm generally sensitive to bitterness, but this one didn't bother me as it played well with the bold rye notes.
