A nose of allspice, orange peel, anise, oak, char and caramel. The palate is sweet; hints of caramel and vanilla, followed by rye­spice and mint. Long finish; warm butterscotch and caramel.

First, a warning: this is only for those who like their rye big and brawny. It starts off innocuously with a maple-syrup color, and a pretty, complex and subtle scent: honey, vanilla, a sight medicinal tinge and faint clover notes. It feels silky on the tongue and at first, the flavors reflect caramel, burnt orange and a whisper of smoke, but then a mouth-warming wave of tannic bite sweeps over all and lingers for a good long time. Straight up or on the rocks.
