This is my first rye whiskey I have had rye heavy bourbons but nothing like this, its is succulent, fruity, spicy, and dry a different beast than bulleit bourbon.

The nose: very fruity, low spice, tiny amounts of oak, vanilla, and a hint of alcohol burn. Palate: like someone else mentioned it takes a minute to rev up its engine during the first 5 seconds it is sweet and fruity, after that the rye shines through with vanilla, fruit, rye spice and a dry fruit to make it feel dry all the way through the time you taste it. Finish: the spice is here and it numbs my tongue a tiny bit in the good way that tells you i just had whiskey, but before the numbing I get fruit, dried spices, vanilla and a nice alcohol burn in the end.

I will let this oxidate for 4 months, occasionally having a finger of it to "test" the whiskey within. This is dangerous so light you can forget you are drinking a 90 proofer.
