This rye is double finished for an additional three months in separate barrels which previously contained port wine. “Brilliant bronze color. Delicate, fruity aromas of raisin cake, caramel buttercream, suede, and pepper jam with a silky, lively, fruity medium-full body and a warming, involved, toasted fruitcake, cedar, exotic spices, and mineral finish. A great, well aged sipping rye; try with cigars.” Dark, robust color with a deep floral nose, fruit and spices. Up front pepper yields to the port fruit on the mid-palate, complemented by cinnamon and cloves. It coats the tongue and finishes with black cherry. The finish is warming and well-balanced.
