Don
Don,
I love rye - but this one is not good. It tastes very grassy, and not in a good way. It tastes unfinished, not properly aged or like there is something just plain wrong with it. I almost tossed out the entire bottle because it was so bad. I decided to infuse it with black tea to have a tea-infused rye. I soaked it for much longer than normal to get the "grassiness" mellowed out. Even still, its just barely ok and not something enjoyable. This is a pass for me.

Josh,
Oh my word. Had a whiskey tasting last night. Of 7 participants, every one of us gave this a 1 out of 10. Easily one of the worst I have ever tasted.

Mild spice. Notes of vanilla and caramel.

Steve,
Well, it's a rye. I was hoping that this was more like the Basil Hayden's port finished rye, but it's not even close.
 
James
James,
Incredible aroma - vanilla, plums, oak, sweet flowers. After taking in the wonderful nose of this whiskey, I had high hopes for the taste, and was pleased, but also a little bit disappointed. The taste is certainly nice - with notes of dark fruit and the expected rye spiciness - but it didn’t “knock me over” the way that I’d anticipated when I first opened the bottle and caught a whiff of the aroma. Added a few drops of water and DID NOT like the result...the finish completely fractured and it took on a funky, “wet cardboard” aftertaste. Much better straight or in a cocktail. This may not become my “daily drinker,” but will definitely earn a place in my “I want something different” rotation. Makes a TERRIFIC Manhattan! All things considered, glad I bought - and will likely purchase again.

The port aging really sets this apart. Neat, no ice, very nice.

William,
I have enjoyed this bottle as my first significant rye experience. I'm a fan of port, so I thought a port-barrel aged rye was a great and unique place to start. I'll admit that my ability to detect subtle flavors and aromas is still under development, but the flavor spiral for this one seems fairly spot on. It's easy to down a few glasses of this smooth-drinking rye.

Tasty and quite spicy. Not terribly much better than much less expensive ryes, such as bulleit.
