Distilled at MGP, aged for 4 years and bottled by Proof And Wood, this single barrel selection comes to us using MGP's 36% rye mashbill and at barrel proof.
Honey, baking spice, toffee and some pepper. This has that 36% good good, a lovely balance of baking spice, oak, sweet dessert notes and proof. Smells bold, doesn't have a huge ethanol presence.
Sweet buttercream, maple candies, brown sugar and butterscotch. Light pepper, nice mouthfeel. Fairly viscous - surprisingly so for the age. Toffee, oak, creme brulee and a hint of creamed corn.
Long finish, plenty of brown sugar, toffee, a hit of pepper and sweet oak.
Quite a nice single barrel here. For the age, you wouldn't know it if it wasn't on the label. Beautiful combination of oak, toffee, baking spice and honey. I dig it.
