Silky, smooth and syrupy, with a lightness that would lend itself to a Sazerac. Light tawny golden color, scent of vanilla, oranges and, faintly, peaches. Caramel flavors wind up into a pleasantly warm and smooth finish.

Incredibly smooth for a rye whiskey (almost too smooth), but still with plenty of character to make the journey very entertaining. Notes of evergreen, almonds, and bright fruit lie on a bed of caramel, honeyed vanilla, and banana bread. Lingering spicy finish.
