Nose
Candy corn and dense concentration of cocoa. Autumn leaves give a toasted frame. Cooked fruit and cigar box enter the mix.

Palate
Impressive texture bringing dense caramel and smoke. Dark raisins and pecans roll through to the next layer of delicate spices.

Finish
Complex finish with myriad exciting flavors that linger sweet and dry.

Comments
Flavors are vivid and defined and run up and down the palate.

Score

9.0

Nose
Freshly opened cola with some notes of candy corn, and cinnamon powder.  

Palate
Dry fruit, such as dates and some dried red currants, emerge first. Then some light caramel, some new leather, and lightly astringent oak arrive.   

Finish
Stays sweet for some time before suddenly shifting into the woody/leathery realm. 

Comments
A rye that leans toward the fruitier side. Try it in a black Manhattan made with amaro rather than in the traditional variety made with sweet vermouth.

Score

8.9
