Nose: A fair amount of vanilla, a little astringency like a fresh black Sharpie marker, some mint, and a bit of what I want to say is graham cracker or pie crust.
Taste: The high rye spice hits you straight out of the gate with cinnamon, which moves on to bitter green apple, a bit of cardamom floral notes, then fading to oak, and nutmeg. It’s quite a warm whiskey, there is no vanilla like on the nose.
Finish: This is where the bourbon really shined for me. Despite being high rye the finish is far more reminiscent of a wheat whiskey, oak and soft sweet wheat and cereal linger on the tongue. A bit of orange as well.
