Charles
Charles,
Very smooth. Interesting (in a good way) flavor profile. Had in a tasting box and ordering a full bottle.
 
Clifford
Clifford,
Good rye, but not as much personality as I prefer. Very smooth, neutral taste without much spice or heat. If that’s your preference, you’ll probably love it—my wife sure did.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Insanely smooth and sweet for a 100% rye! Very likeable. Reminds me of the very friendly Bulleit Rye kicked up a notch.
 
Cassandra
Cassandra,
very smooth and loved the caramel notes. full of flavor and its too bad that i tried this tasting first before the others because the others were not as good after this one.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Wow. Just wow. So smooth. So refreshing?!? Can I even use that word to describe a whisky? Well I just did. None of the "major flavors" are overpowering to the point where you cannot explore the undertones. I've had it room temp. I've had it over granite rocks. Put this on your shelf. Share with your friends, or don't. Definitely share.
 
Sarah
Sarah,
Had a sip in my tasting box. Smoooth operator. Will be ordering a full size and testing some cocktails, but this is nice when it's neat for sure.
 
Melissa
Melissa,
Very nice.
 
Isak
Isak,
Tastes like a sugar cookie, with that classic rye spicy flavor. Very nice, makes an excellent ol’ fashioned too.
 
John
John,
Excellent, smooth rye. Always enjoyable.
 
Tym
Tym,
One of the smoothest ryes I've ever had. The hint of vanilla is phenomenal.
 
Erwin
Erwin,
If you're looking for a spicy rye = disappointing. If you're looking a mellow vanilla with zero nose and a sweet after taste = good.
 
Scott
Scott,
Very smooth with a peppery after taste
 
Rebekah
Rebekah,
Definitely Rye Rye
 
Jude
Jude,
Spicy, a bit smoky, woody, sweet finish.
 
George
George,
Pretty good for Manhattans, don't prefer it for sipping neat.
 
Dallas
Dallas,
A strong spice and rye taste that tapers off with a smooth sweetness. I can see having a few fingers of this a night.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Pleasant and airy but a bit hollow for me.
 
Zane
Zane,
Smooth and light when taken neat. Very pleasant aroma. Solid choice all around if you're not looking for something to knock your socks off. Literally got this two days after I ordered it. Seems like Flaviar got some of their shipping issues worked out.
 
Michael
Michael,
Aromas of cinnamon, clove, vanilla on the nose. Flavors come in with a dash of the spicy notes you'd expect of a 100% Rye mash, however the light brown sugar and vanilla help smooth the cinnamon-y edge out nicely. Lightly grain-y rye bread notes creep in after. The finish is smooth, slightly dry and gently spicy, with oak trailing on after. Definitely on the lighter side of rye, I find myself wishing for a higher proof expression for mixing purposes, as I felt it got a touch overwhelmed by the angostura bitters and sugar in an Old Fashioned. For neat drinking, though, this might be the best Rye I've sampled yet.

Brad,
A bit harsh- better with some vermouth in a Manhattan than straight up.
 
Lane
Lane,
Sweet, vanilla caramel forward with a oak finish. Very smooth. Little to sweet for my liking
 
Larry
Larry,
Very smooth. I am new to this but this fit my flavor profile quite nicely.
 
Brian

Cinnamon and Vanilla forward. Makes an outstanding Manhattan.

Very smooth rye. Soft honey opening with smooth oak and rye finish.

Better with ice. Good, but not as smooth as some of the other Ryes.

So Good! Will be purchasing more!

Loved it. Smooth
 
Luis
Luis,
A flavorful Rye. Tastes of vanilla and cloves, oaky with a smooth low burn on the finish. I really like this Rye!
 
john
john,
Very smooth with a bit of sweet on the end. My fave at the moment.
 
Louie
Louie,
Unfortunately I was suffering from a sinus infection when I got my bottle of this stuff so I can really say much. Except it was really smooth and help my throat not feel like razor blades were slicing my throat. I do wish it would have been higher in abv that's really about it. I don't think I'll be buying this one again anytime soon. I might give it another shot in the future if the come out with a higher abv expression.
 
Adam
Adam,
Rye, cinnamon, vanilla; not to spicy
 
Kathy
Kathy,
So far, this is one of my favorite rye whiskies. I prefer a lighter side rye on the rocks and this fits the bill. No burn and a great finish.
 
Courtney
Courtney,
The initial burn made me question this at first, but it mellows quickly and has a nice finish. I wouldn’t drink this neat, but adding an ice cube, or a couple drops of water opens it up nicely and levels out that kick
 
Trevor
Trevor,
Definitely a mixer. Not worth the price.
 
SETH
SETH,
did not like the pepper kick of the bat but the smooth long finish made up for it.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Great for an Old Fashioned.
 
Anthony
Anthony,
Great to make and old fashioned with.

Smooth. Great flavor. Not as spicy as most Ryes, but overall great whiskey
 
Beth
Beth,
Smooth, with the spice coming through the vanilla and honey.
 
Ivan
Ivan,
Very smooth, not strong alcohol taste, caramel helps it roll around in your mouth nicely.

Easy drinking rye.
 
Jeffrey
Jeffrey,
This is a surprisingly sweet rye. I am stunned that it's from 100% rye mash. There are definitely the earthy rye notes but like the others say there are more prevalent notes of vanilla and perhaps honey. It's very well balanced. Great buy! It's perhaps better than a lot of bourbons (which I generally prefer).
 
Michael
Michael,
I like and kosher too
 
JUSTIN
JUSTIN,
This is the best rye whiskey in my opinion. I'll definitely be buying more.
 
Mike
Mike,
Very Smooth. The finish is excellent, and easy to identify the flavors hidden within. Excellent Rye.
 
Todd
Todd,
Very smooth and clean finish. Little honey and very light vanilla tones. Similar to Red Breast 12 yr. Except this is smoother. Right in line with Basil Hayden. I would buy it again.
 
Matt
Matt,
I found the Koval Rye to be smooth, tasty, and easy on the palate, on the rocks or with splash of ginger ale. I would recommend it to those whose taste are more tailored to smoother blends.
 
Christopher
Christopher,
Beautiful and sweet
 
Casey
Casey,
Very smooth with a tasty finish.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Great flavor! Not too stout, not too sweet, just right.

Smooth, light taste. Not overly sweet.

Dawn,
Very smooth for a rye whiskey. Very enjoyable
