Peggy Noe Stevens – 8.8 

Nose: Great herbaceous nose with rye spice and molasses that slides in on the second nose. Energetic aromas of caramelized wood sugar. 

Palate: Engaging first sip that captures the caramel and vanilla at just the right pace before it opens to a rich cinnamon and Asian spice that pleases. Walnuts and apple. 

Finish: Long sweet dry finish that is abundant with spicy blends.

Comment: Crowd pleasing rye whiskey that deserves another sip… and another. 

Susan Reigler – 8.5 

Nose: Herbal rye note is light and accompanied by ripe apples, plus a squeeze of citrus. A whiff of cola. 

Palate: Fresh fruit and herbal spice light up the palate and the note on the nose resolves into cola. Sweetness and spice seesaw back and forth with each other. 

Finish: The herbs linger on the tongue and are joined by bracing black pepper for a long, satisfying finish.  

Comment: A fine neat sip. Would also be an excellent rye for cocktail mixing too.
