Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance:
Lip Service offers a luminous amber coloration, showcasing visual characteristics consistent with a well-structured rye whiskey. The liquid's legs in the glass hint at a medium-bodied experience ahead.

Nose (Aroma):
The olfactory profile immediately captivates with an invigorating blend of spice and floral notes, backed by subtle hints of vanilla and dried fruit. The perfume of newly cut hay mingles with delicate nuances of cardamom and cinnamon, signaling the rye's complex architecture.

Palate (Taste):
On the palate, this rye whiskey reveals an admirable balance. The quintessential spiciness of rye grain melds seamlessly with flavors of honey and brown sugar, giving way to a crescendo of citrus zests and black pepper. An underpinning of oak tannins provides structure, while a trace of dark chocolate adds a layer of unexpected richness.

The finish is moderately long, embracing the palate with a final spice kick that gradually mellows into a comforting warmth. Subtle accents of toasted oak and caramel linger, making the ending as memorable as the whiskey's initial introduction.

Its 45% ABV lends a smooth yet robust mouthfeel, capable of carrying its complex flavor profile without overwhelming the senses.
