Sur Lee Rye
Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits
Peggy Noe Stevens
Candy corn and snickerdoodle cookie. Butterscotch is faint. The floral honeysuckle comes forward, bringing another layer of sweetness.
Rye bread and dill flavors on the first sip. Pronounced brown sugar and ginger. Bites of milk chocolate and jammy blackberries.
Finishes as it should with dill and oak lingering and a background of the ginger still standing at attention.
A gentle rye that behaves itself, yet is forthcoming on the spice.
Warm and inviting. Vanilla soufflé as it is baking in the oven with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar and fresh orange blossom.
Berry fruit with some licorice that grows without overpowering a brown sugar note.
The licorice steps out first and fades into some oak and light pepper. Clean and dry.
A mild-manned, well-balanced rye that would play well with vermouth in a Manhattan, but be cautious about a Sazerac given that licorice.
