Member Ratings and Notes
Sku
 

The nose has the nice spicy rye that's typical of High West's Rendezvous Rye with just a touch of pickle juice. The palate has a very nice balance of sweet and spice. Early in the finish there is a bit of a chemical taste, as with an artificial sweetener, but that trails off quickly and leads to a pleasantly sweet, slightly minty finish with cloves and cola notes.

 B/B+

n:  Vanilla, sugary leather.  Nice

 

p:  Candied leather, lavendar, cherry kool-aid.  Not at all hot but still full flavored.  A winner.
