This is a cheap, well priced 100% Rye that got a lot of raving when it came out, so why not try it.
Nose: Fruit. Lots and lots of fruit.
Palate: Sweet, dry, velvety astringent texture, with a bit a spice. Now with water, this gets much better. We get more sweetness coming through, and it becomes much smoother.
Finish: Fairly short. Dry with lingering woody notes and some sour fruit.
Conclusion - So where does this stand among the rye's. Well, for one, this a very affordable whisky to enjoy, but it definitely helps to get the water in to bring out the most. Additionally, it comes off as a little "restrained", but that's to be expected from CC/ at this price point. On a more positive note, this is a smooth whisky - make no mistake - easy to sip on and very easy to polish off. For the price, you can't go wrong.
