Member Ratings and Notes

This has a great high-rye nose with sandalwood and wood polish; it's much more similar to an old Pennsylvania rye than an LDI (which is also a rye/barley mashbill). The palate also has that sandalwood note as well as some pepper. It's very spicy and pretty dry, having just a touch of sweetness. It's a nicely done rye and fairly distinct from anything on the market today.



initially intense and bright rye spice (buttery dill, cinnamon, and all-spice). Gingerbread sweetness, but this stays savoury and refined. Quite dry + oaked in the middle - fades quickly to sweet caramel custard and candied peanuts. Flavour is more intense and compartmentalized, but creates and fun "thinking" rye. I like the full body/syrupy mouthfeel. Nice rye to sip neat.  [B, nearly B+]
