This rye whiskey is phenomenal. The ‘rye-surgence’ is real. This is also the first-ever appearance of this American distillery in Outturn, and it smashed it out of the park. The basic elements of rye can often be described as ‘black pepper’ and ‘spice’. This is one hundred times more. This is also what I would call a once-in-a-hundred occurrence rye. It’s syrupy, thick, textured, and somehow equally tastes like something made in an old-fashioned distillery and crafted by a coastal restaurant. Try it neat. Try it in an Old Fashioned. Just don’t miss this belter.

A cascade of descriptors which included banana bread, fudge, butterscotch, figs, bramble jam, brown sugar, gorse flowers, toasted oak and marmalade were mentioned on the nose neat. A dark juicy earthiness on the palate, flambéed pineapple rings, singed orange peel and toasted coconut panna cotta alongside a black cherry berry tea. Diluted like a warm prawn and seaweed salad, melted salted butter as well as maple-orange spice coated macadamia nuts. To taste at first cannelloni of gingerbread, kirsch mousse and cinnamon ice cream was followed by Seville oranges and cardamom Crème Brûlée and, in the never-ending finish, charred pepper, cloves and spearmint.
