Michter's Barrel Strength is a cask strength Rye of unknown provenance but completely known pricing. I, however, like rye - especially at cask strength so I'm looking forward to giving this a go.
Brown sugar, molasses, toffee and cocoa. Tobacco, pepper, caramel. Complex, quite a bit going on.
Burnt brown sugar, heavy clove, rye spice, cocoa, tobacco, black pepper. Tons going on - creme brulee, bold rye spice, toffee and a pecan pie note on the back palate.
Medium, spice heavy, lots of cocoa and caramel. Root beer candies, toffee and a delightful symphony of oak, honey, caramel and baking spice.
I liked this more than I remember. It's a nice unique profile that focuses more on caramel, clove, cocoa and some nice tobacco in the profile. I don't know what it goes for $ wise but I thoroughly enjoyed the sample I had.
