Size: 750ml

ABV: 45% Age: 6 years Price: $35 Distiller: Austin, Nichols Distilling Company Mash: 65% rye, 23% corn, and 12% malted barley

EYE Coppery Amber

NOSE Caramel followed by a big slap of rye accompanied by some butterscotch, red berries, vanilla and dill. Some wood comes sliding in underneath to support the whole thing.

TASTE Caramel, rye, vanilla and wood completely dominate the palate but leave little cracks for some leather, pepper and an ambiguous baking spice to slip in.

FINISH A woody biscuity character envelopes rye spice, a watery caramel and a bit of dill that mixes, mingles and slowly fades.

BALANCE, BODY & FEEL Good balance, medium body and a soft simple feel makes this one ridiculously easy to drink.
