Surprisingly elegant at 114.3 Proof, which is perhaps odd to say about a whiskey at near-barrel strength, but it drinks more like a 100 Proof Bourbon Whiskey. You get the rye showing its face on the front end with a nice creaminess and subtlety on the back end.
Intensity – 4; Sooty, oak, cologne, leather, smoky
Salty, mint, musty, significant rye presence, yet with a creamy texture
Length – Long; Molasses, toffee, rich caramel, chocolate, fudge, peppermint
