Corked and caged 750 ml from my trip back home to MD. Pours orange amber colored with some light showing through and a massive yellowish off white head. Aroma is whiskey and spice, oak, some oxidization, a hint of sourness on the nose. Hmm. Weird. Flavor is near straight rye whiskey, lots of rye grainy spiciness, earthy tones, lingering oak and mild vanilla. Almost no sweet malt presence. Somewhat bland, sort of like watered down whiskey on the rocks. Body is thinner than I was hoping for, with medium carbonation. Meh.
Maybe a little hard on this to start, as it improved as it warmed and slowly grew on me. Still was hoping for more sweetness and maybe it was one of those "not on the mood for this right now" issues. But it paired nicely with some dried figs, and I suspect would be enhance with some funky cheese alongside that.
