I basically forgot this review. Anyways lets dive in eh? Color: Dark Amber

Nose: Sweet with candied fruits (cherries), sprigs of sweet mint, notes of fall baking spices (cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg). Reminiscent of a high proof Christmas cake. Spicy/sweet cherries and cola notes too.

Body: Medium weight, and a little tongue tingling.

Taste: Assertive spicy front, a formidable blitzkrieg on the tongue. Spicy nutmeg and black pepper. A little bit of caramel and toffee. Drying notes from the rye, slight bitter oak and mint notes exist also.

Finish: Short yet potent with oak, black pepper and red chilies.

Overall: Quite the spicy drop. But I enjoy bold flavors. This whiskey could very well hold its own in an Old-Fashioned or a Manhattan. Wonderful value by the way at $25.
