Delightful balance and length. Citrus pith and stone fruit nose carries over to the palate, joined by mellow oak, floral notes. Medium body. Finishes medium to long, mild acidity giving way to minerals. — 8 days ago
Batch 40. A little thinner than earlier batches. Delightfully complex nose -- even has some cocoa notes. Strong initial burn that fades into a long finish.
Minor flaws: a sulfur note, maybe from the cognac barrel. Also the sharp heat is a bit more than expected for the 6y+ blend. — 2 years ago
Marvelous. All the classic brown sugar, vanilla, oak and spice you could want, with none of the medicinal stinging bitterness of a lesser whiskey. Remarkable depth. Opens to reveal more of its bouquet with water, but I found it most impressive uncut.
Haven't had bookers in 15 years. This limited edition is better than anything I remember. — 2 years ago
Tart, has some body. Palate of yeast and lemon rind, with a wisp of something floral. Moderate-length dry finish. — 16 days ago
Blueberries and brambles bouquet. Gentle tannin and med body like a pinot. Lovely balance. — a month ago
Spectacular. The first truly great rye I've had. Balance, mouthfeel, complex aromatics and a solid finish. I'd prefer more heat, but that's just me. — 2 years ago

Lovely. Jammy, berries, hints of funky grape skin, strong but controlled tannin. — a month ago
Solid product, but lacks depth. Heat is pleasant but not overpowering. The vanillin on the other hand is overpowering. — 2 years ago
Fruit forward--cherries and red plum, faint spicines or note of cacao. Silky palate, long finish.
Bloody marvelous for $11 a bottle here in Washington, D.C. — 2 years ago
