I'm a bit startled by how mellow Regal Rye is - there's practically no head to speak of, and the carbonation is nearly non-existent. The blackberry wasn't really what I'd been expecting (blame me for not reading the description...) - but the cherry and sea salt just didn't seem all that present, to my palate. Surprising. I'm wondering whether these have faded with age, or whether they were never that pronounced. My tasting buddies all stated that Regal has aged marvelously well. I'm wondering how this may mature over the years... wish I had a few bottles stashed to experiment.
