Austin,
Subtle good easy drinker. Little tickle on the tongue but smooth all around

Love the sherry finish, great bang for your buck

David,
Great, unique flavor. Very smooth for a rye, and the sherry adds a nice touch. Feel like it's still missing something though.

Just average. Sweet, easy finish, flavor not powerful

John,
Needs to be blended into a cocktail. Not strong enough to be near.

Kent,
Expected more. A bit harsh. Not fond of the flavor profile. Glad to be done with the bottle.

A really nice rye for the price. Sherry cask finish adds a pleasant touch. Makes a great tasting cocktail. Completely underrated in the rye world.

Spencer,
Really excellent combination that comes from the rye and sherry casks--spicy and a rich, creamy, undertone. I found the combination sours as it lingers on the palate, to the point that the finish almost feels like cough syrup (which sounds worse than I mean it), but I still love it on the whole.

David,
This is my favorite rye...I like it better than Whistle Pig and other trendy ryes. Love the sherry finish, you can really taste the sherry and cherry-like sweetness, along with caramel. But has just enough bite.

Kyle,
I once bought this bottle a while back and it was a wonderful whiskey (my favorite rye so far actually). The flavor was exactly as described, it was smooth, complex, and all of the flavors were there, nothing was overwhelming. HOWEVER.... I recently ordered another bottle of the same minor case, which looks the same save for the letters being painted (a nice touch). For some reason it is much more rough this time and the oak is very overwhelming. The nose however is similar to last time. I'm not sure what happened or if it's just the bottle i got, but I didn't want to give it a bad rating because f how good it was the last time I bought it. Would still buy it again!

Sam,
Excellent rye. Pour let sit and it gets a nice caramel note. Definitely will be a keeper in my collection.
 
Greg
Greg,
Dangerously smooth and well-balanced whisky. The sherry flavor shows up in the middle of the flavor profile. The alcohol burn is negligible and sweetness is prominent but not overpowering.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
This is pretty good for two years. The flavor profiles are pretty spot on but none of them are overly potent. It’s definitely worth the price here but not the $16 pour or $55 bottle I’ve seen it in my local area.

Shockingly good taste with a light Sherry at the end
 
Paige
Paige,
Not gonna lie, I was skeptical AF with the 2 Year age statement but wow did this dram from Minor Case deliver! Caramel and vanilla are obvious on the nose that leads into a mellow spice and oak note with hints of fruit on the palette followed by a long sweet sherry finish. Literally mind blown with how clean this Rye is. Well done!

Spicy and bold
 
Jason
Jason,
I am new to Rye. I think I might be more of a scotch guy. This is just a little too harsh for my taste.
 
Stephen
Stephen,
Sweet on the tongue. Hints of maple and cherry, nice finish. I really like the aftertaste, it’s quite smooth and mellow. A very good rye.
 
Mary
Mary,
This is delicious, smooth, and very easy drinking....neat and iced. I'll order it again.
