This has got a nice, spicy nose with just a touch of honey in the background. The palate starts with bold rye spice and then develops some sweetness. It's a spice bomb with mint, clove and ginger. The finish is sweet and spicy with lots of ginger, but then it turns medicinal and bitter. Oh, and don't add water, it brings out bananas and other, weird fruity notes.

 

This was decent but I found it a bit underwhelming.

 
Ries
 

n: warm rye with butter, eucalyptus, Red Vines candy.

 

t: starts with fresh rye spice and hard white cake frosting with a touch of mint and orange zest. Honey and white sugar sweetness with black tea. Vanilla and dry, tannic oak in the finish. I like the extra bite to this vs Rittenhouse. [B-/B]
