Rabbit Hole’s first rye, Boxergrail is matured for at least 3 years and bottled at 47.5% ABV
Sweet, fragrant, citrus, spice. Quite a bit going on here. Strong floral notes.
Sweet on the palate. Moderate mouthfeel, a faint pinprick of heat. Sweet rye notes like brown sugar, apple, clove and a spicy pepper quality. Light oak.
Long finish, again with a bit of spice. More oak here, which is welcome, to pair nicely with spicy pepper, fresh juicy apple, and a bit of brown butter.
A very competent rye, Rabbit Hole’s Boxergrail manages to shine despite its youth.
