Added on Friday, Dec 2, 2016 at 04:01 AM
Mash: 65% rye, 23% corn, and 12% malted barley
Member Ratings and Notes
Gentle spice and clay, floral notes and sweet corn syrup. Alcohol burn and thin mouthfeel. Vanilla and wood char in the finish. Doesn't have much rye bite to it. More sweet than spice.
Drinking this neat doesn’t really work for me, but to use it to make inexpensive cocktails with, this is a good choice. [C/C-]
Side by side:
101 rye is my hands down preference vs the 81 rye
