This is a Kentucky straight rye whiskey, it is single barrel and barrel proof. It was put in the barrel at 50% ABV and bottled at 52.77% ABV. Distilled from 56% rye, 33% corn, and 11% malted barley.
Nose: I smell banana, caramel, and black pepper with subtle notes of allspice and clove.
Palate: There is an overall sweetness throughout this. I get a lot of caramel and toasted oak on the front. This transitions to a leathery spice at the mid-palate. The finish leaves my mouth dry with a slight astringency. The addition of water brings out a number of flavors I didn’t get straight out of the bottle. I get a hint of menthol right before the finish, which has lemon balm accompanied with a slight vegetal quality.
