Without a doubt one of the best Rye whiskies for the price. This an absolute workhorse for any cocktail and my go-to Rye Whiskey for mixing. I would not say this is a great sippin' whiskey but it has a nice fruity and light peppery taste. It blends well with other flavors without being overpowering The higher ABV also adds to the overall good flavor. I highly recommend this bottle and I always keep a bottle on hand.
