Top reviews for Black Button Empire Rye Whiskey:

— This was my favorite from my tasting box. Great Rye, very smooth and balanced with just a hint of sweetness. Pleasantly woody with hints of spice and pepper. Looking forward to making a tasty Old Fashioned. One of the best Rye's I have had.

— A very smooth woody Rye. The pepper and nuttiness roll smoothly. Not harsh at all. Wish I had more

— Enjoyed the fruity character of this one. Will buy a bottle. Enjoyed by all in our tasting party.

Greg
Greg,
Got this in a tasting box and is the only rye from the tasting that so would consider buying. Unfortunately Flaviar doesn’t have it for sale now! Definitely got the banana aroma and orange sweetness on the palette. Added an ice cube and it really popped - would be a good sipper.

Fruity nose with lots of banana esters. The finish is very smooth for a Rye. Best of the tasting box and one I would def purchase a whole bottle of.

A unique rye in that it’s unfiltered character is palatable as a rugged and pure whiskey.

Carl,
Very standard rye, nothing special, but it tastes like what it’s supposed to be. Eye: Golden straw Nose: Fruity (banana), Sweet Taste: Rye and not much else Finish: Rye Mouth feel: Creamy

Best of the lot. Fruity, complex, nice finish. Nice alternative to my go-to High west double rye but much softer character
 
Jason
Jason,
Best one of the flight for sure, really a good experience in fruit.
