Distilled at MGP and bottled by Smooth Ambler, this single barrel of rye whiskey was aged for 4 years and bottled at barrel proof.
Baking spice, clove, honey, copper metallic notes and a big hit of spearmint. Rich on the nose, lack of age isn't broadcasted here at all.
Medium mouthfeel, a lot of character. Maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, powerful pepper and clove. Lightly herbal, leaning more spearmint than dill.
Long finish, most notably the most complex part of the pour. Long finish, packed with dessert notes, clove, spearmint and a whallop of brown butter.
Honestly, drinking quite nicely. This is probably the youngest MGP rye I've had that has impressed me and I'm a fan. (Barrel #16821)
