Member Ratings and Notes
On the nose this is just a huge rye bomb.  Massive rye spice.  The flavor follows up well with pure, punchy rye.  It's got a bit of sweetness in the front but that dissipates to a rush of savory rye and some great brinyness and herbal notes.  This is really fun, explosive stuff. 

Another great one from High West.
I agree with SKU on the heavy Rye spice and smack in the face.....and that doesn't usually sit as wel wit me.  Well made just not my cup of whiskey.
