Ratings & Reviews:

90 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023

"An inviting nose with sweet toffee and barrel spice notes, which follow onto the palate. A touch of char adds depth and balances the sweetness. Good complexity and finish."

93 Points & Top 100 Spirits 2019 - Wine Enthusiast:
"A honey hue and rich vanilla aroma mark this six-year-old rye whiskey. The palate nods to its 100% rye grain mash bill, opening with brisk cinnamon and allspice sparks that round into mellower vanilla and caramel midpalate, finishing long and spiced. Adding water brings more vanilla to the fore and adds a toasted grain note to the finish." 

90 Points - Whisky Advocate

"Buttered bread, brown sugar, pecan pie, lemon juice, nutmeg, marzipan, and fresh pound cake highlight a warm and inviting nose. There’s a pleasant nuttiness on the palate, along with root beer spices, cocoa powder, cherry pie, and cinnamon hot chocolate all delivered on a creamy texture. Vanilla bean, baking spice, dried herbs, and cherry syrup punctuate the lengthy finish. Sweet dessert flavors paired with earthy and warming spices make this a winner."
