The palate is slightly youthful and a stark contrast from the nose.Where the nose is mostly sweet, the palate is a bold spicy burst of rye that really shines through.It combines with a mixture of nuts, oak, black pepper, and a touch of sweet vanilla.It's surprising how much the rye shines through for the percentage in the mix, but the end resultis a bold palate that surprises with each sip.
Light but lively, candie orange and white cake nicely blend together.They're joined by a touch of vanilla, light oak, and pepper.A light layer of ethanol lies in wait, and appears with a heavy sniff.A nice way to start off the sip.
The finish starts with a touch of warming heat as the rye spice carries through.Additionally, there is a brief hint of vanilla and peaches to start the finish.These fade leaving straw, oak, and leather on the backend.The finish ends on a lingering spicy rye and dry leather note.While it's a perfectly nice way to end, it's also the weakest part of the sip by comparison.
