Nose: You first notice the fresh, cool anise, different from a barley malt. Banana and cool mint are forefront, but you can also pick out vanilla and honey sweetness, and some soft oak influence of nutmeg and orange rind.
Palate: The obvious flavor is caraway, with a pleasant cooling effect. Light and thin in mouth-feel, it has faintly sweet background of banana or pear, but more noticeable are the floral oak spices.
Finish: Again the rye dominates, with long, lingering fennel coolness. Slightly bitter grapefruit rind emerges.
I imagine this will be an especially great one to pull out on a hot summer day....
