  • Nose:

    Molasses, brown sugar. Theres some clove and allspice with a nice hit of pine and oak. Minty as well in a spearmint fashion.

  • Taste:

    Theres dill, mint and sugar. This is how I described the sample from another barrel and theres little variation here. I notice a good deal more sweetness though, like thicken brown sugar and more molasses. Almost a shoo-fly pie kinda note. Delicious.

  • Finish:

    Sharp rye spice. Long and a bit hotter but also more complex. The dill is toned down a hair but it still feels a tad rough. At this proof though its delicious.

  • Overall:

    There is some noticeable variation here in contrast to the bottle I have but its good and bad. I dont like this sample any less. In fact, I might like it a hair more. This is definitely still a step above, but to me its not quite SAOS 7yr Rye. I love the proof though. If I could get SAOS 7yr at this proof every day on the shelf...Id go wild. Back to this dram though, its sweet, hot and brings all those lovely rye notes around. I dig it.
