The back label of this whiskey describes it as “feisty,” and feisty it is! Brandishing 95% rye bottled at 46% and at a relatively young age (around two years old), this whiskey lets you know you are alive. It’s very spicy, with crisp evergreen, warming cinnamon, clove, rooty licorice, dark chocolate, and suggestions of gin botanicals. Spicy, vibrant finish. Adds zing in a cocktail, the same way smoky Islay whiskies make their presence in a blended scotch.
