Color: Polished mahogany
Nose: Intensity - 4, sooty, oak, cologne, leather, and smoke.
Palate: Salt, mint, musty, significant rye presence, yet with a creamy texture.
Finish: Length - long, molasses, toffee, rich caramel, chocolate, fudge and peppermint.
Overall Impressions: Quite elegant at 57.15% ABV, which is perhaps somewhat unusual to say about a whiskey at near-barrel strength.
