A blend of straight rye whiskeys, aged from 2-16 years, finished in Syrah and Vermouth wine barrels.

Nose: Cinnamon stick, cassis, star anise, dried thyme, rose petal and fruit leather; with time in the glass it opens up to notes of black cherry, rich cocoa nibs, brown sugar, and subtle clove
Taste: Bold cinnamon spice and orange rind, followed by silky layers of vanilla, blackberry, and dried herbs
Finish: Clover honey, black currants, and subtle mint


"Attention wine lovers: this fab bottling with the cowboy label is made with a blend of straight rye whiskies finished in two wine casks, formerly holding vermouth and Syrah. The result is a deep ruddy amber hue and a strikingly concentrated flavor profile. Look for warming layers of caramel, toffee and espresso, drying to leather, zingy orange peel and spice. Sip or mix into Manhattans or any drink including sweet vermouth." -Rated 96, Wine Enthusiast
