The big grains are off from the start, though a little caramel from the oak blunts a little of the usual sharpness; mouth-hugging, the rye, infused with a little spice, follows every contour on the palate, bombing the taste buds with the most salivating and precise grain intensity imaginable. It’s just…wow!!! no whiskey has a right to have a finish of this length. Wave after wave after wave of fruity rye, always slightly different in its intensity of sweetness or fruitiness; I’m not sure any micro distillery makes their cuts any cleaner than these guys. Just put them into the Premier class…
