Todd wasn't sure where he'd gotten this or when it had been opened. We enjoyed it nonetheless. In fact, even though it had a wine taste, I liked it.

-smelled licorice w/citrus, oak
-tasted sweet w/tinge of sourdough bread
-w/water smelled rubbery w/caramel
-tasted cinnamon, vanilla w/caramel, bourbon and sweet oak
Water really opened this up! Truly a distilled beer.
I happened to come into possession of these two bottles and a Todd visit was the occasion to open them. Since it is not anywhere near local, I know little about their expressions. Also I am sure there are breathtaking natural views surrounding this place. Apparently local law in Montana only allows serving spirits until 7:30 PM. So plan a late dinner for this stop.

-tasted cherry peppery with no oak
-slight cherry aftertaste
-w/water smelled very sweet cherry dessert
-tasted oaky cherry w/lemon citrus
Water stripped some of the sweetness from this whiskey. It’s really meant to be used in cocktails. The website shared recipes for different drinks to make with this one.
-smelled light rye grassy w/slight bitter
-tasted rye pepper w/some corn
-w/water smelled light corn w/pine
-tasted sweet cherry rye and corn with oak
-trailed sweet oak
The website also lists cocktail recipes for this. It is a nice rye whiskey by itself. I will be revisiting this in the coming months for post ride refreshment and night caps.
