Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The liquid possesses a deep amber color, reflecting its unique blend of ingredients. It shows good viscosity, indicating its rich texture and full body.
Upon nosing, an immediate hit of sweet orange zest is evident, combined with the natural spiciness of rye grains. Hints of honey and rock candy add a sweet complexity without overwhelming the natural aroma of the whiskey.
The first sip reveals a harmonious blend of rye whiskey characteristics — the spiciness and earthy tones are there but beautifully balanced with the added flavors. Notes of orange peel and citrus fruits add a tangy sharpness, which is mellowed by the natural sweetness of honey and rock candy.
The finish is moderately long with warming rye spiciness and a residual sweetness that remains. Citrus notes linger on the palate, along with a comforting honey smoothness.
Despite its sweet profile, Slow & Low Rock and Rye maintains a robust mouthfeel, leaving a lasting impression of its full-bodied characteristics.
