Delicious New Twist on a Old Spirit February 25, 2010
Reviewer: Christopher Carlsson, http://www.spiritsreview.com from Rochester, NY United States  
A lovely if atypical rye bouquet, the sherry barrel influence lends some lovely nuance to the usual rye grain spice profile. Rye spiciness with oak and pepper notes, dried fruit and leather, dried orange peel, nutmeg, dried cherries. Nicely complex bouquet overall.
Taste: Nicely weighty body and mouth feel. Dried dark fruits (think fruitcake but drier) dried orange peel, hints of cherry, vanilla, oak pepper, and cinnamon. The sherry barrels have also added some unique components, something reminiscent of amarone grappa or pisco quebranta grapes, that give a lovely grapey roundness in taste and aromatics to the overall taste that is singularly unique to this rye. Lingering spicy, slightly sweet finish with a notable dryness on the tongue and pleasant heat to it .
I highly recommend this rye as a exciting new style of rye that will be a excellent new product for mixologists both amateur and professional to work with to rewrite old rye based recipes and create many new ones.
