Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The whiskey presents itself in an inviting deep amber hue, imbued with rich golden undertones that glimmer in the light, foretelling a mature and rewarding experience.
On the nose, it exhibits a layered complexity, beckoning with warm notes of toasted rye bread, vanilla, and caramel. This aromatic profile is accentuated by nuanced undertones of oak, dark fruits, and a soft whiff of leather, indicative of its 12-year maturation.
Upon sipping, your taste buds are greeted by a symphony of flavor profiles. The spice kick that is characteristic of rye whiskeys is present but perfectly modulated. It harmonizes with flavors of sweet toffee, dried figs, and a delicate touch of citrus zest. Hints of dark chocolate and a subtle layer of smokiness further enrich the palate.
The finish is exemplary—smooth, warm, and enduring. Spice and sweetness dance together in a balanced finale, leaving a lingering sensation of toasted oak and a trace of anise.
The mouthfeel is remarkably velvety, showcasing its age and the meticulous care taken in its crafting. Each sip rolls smoothly over the tongue, allowing a full appreciation of its complexity.

Took alittle longer than expected but was cheaper than the liquor stores. Plus right now you can’t even buy them At the liquor store. There is a shortage of bottles I was told
Everything was great. Communication, shipping, product, and price. Thanks
Beautiful bottle, very reasonably priced for a 12 year old rye but lacking depth and complexity.
Falls kinda flat for me....thinking it would’ve been considerably more enjoyable had it not been proofed down to 40ABV.
Cannot argue with other reviews about it ‘going down (too) easy.
