  • Intro:

    Mic Drop is the brainchild of PM Spirits in New York - taking casks from producers and typically blending them for releases under their own label. This is a 4yr rye, distilled in 2015 by Wilderness Trail.

  • Nose:

    Rich clove, honey, toffee, a hit of caramel and musty tobacco. No sign of youth here, which is encouraging.

  • Taste:

    Minty and enticing on the palate. Lovely honey, mint, faint pepper, a touch of dill and some sweet cream here. Savory, sweet, spicy, delightful. Not at all youthful which colors me surprised.

  • Finish:

    Medium finish - spicy and vegetal with a bit of brown sugar. This is quintessentially rye forward. Boy is it spicy.

  • Overall:

    Really damn good for a 4 year old rye. Lots of body, complexity - Wilderness Trail, erm, Mic Drop knocked it out of the park with this for the kind of age. I prefer this to MGP rye around the same age.

  • Score:

    6
