ABV: 46
In stock

86% Rye, 12% Malted Barley
Aged in 15 gallon (56ltr) 2 year yard dried, new #4 char American oak.
Tasted: Dec 2013
Pungent aromas of pure, young. Herbal-green rye. Hugely spiced with white pepper, sweet cinnamon and nutmeg. The oak is quite grainy but sweet and adds roasted Java coffee and a touch of bitter chocolate. Visceral but polished with molasses and a light manurey note. With time a touch of Balcones Brimstone like burnt scrub appears.

The palate is soft and herbal with plenty of young, edgy, green rye. The oak is more subservient, thus the emphasis is on the taught and sinewy oils and light citrus. Young and raw, but those spices are truly magnificent and sweet. Good length with the sweet, lightly toasted, marzipan/nutty sweet oak coming through along with that herbal wood smoke and a touch of smoked meat. Quite an earthy, lightly coffee’d, milk and bitter dark chocolate after-taste. Seriously intense and a real mouthful!
