Distribution of ratings for this:
I bought this bottle on a whim when I went camping with my family in early July. I wanted a change from the standard cheap rye I usually buy for my rye & gingers. I found this wallet-friendly whisky much better than expected.
- Nose: somewhat bitter, grapefruit pith, the rye is present but doesn't dominate, some oak notes
- Palate: peppery, somewhat briny (kind of like dill pickles, but not exactly), nutty notes, very sweet and sour/umami
- Finish: short to medium length, rye returning, more nuttiness, peppery, slight hints of pickled ginger
I think this will be a mainstay of my liquor cabinet. It's inexpensive, bottled at a decent strength, works neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail (it really shines in a Manhattan). Perhaps I'm rating it this high because I wasn't expecting much. Well done, Wiser's.
