The first time I tried this whiskey I was at the Principal's Office in Colorado Springs. I was very surprised on how smooth this rye whiskey tasted. This particular rye whiskey is distilled and bottled by the Heaven Hill Distillery in Louisville, KY. It has notes of a Pennsylvania style rye whiskey that has a mild peppery finish. You would not expect this when you nose the whiskey. The smell is of vanillas and oak, almost sweet in nature. The taste is more of a toasted vanilla, charred oak flavor with a mild pepper finish. For one who really enjoys rye whiskeys, like myself, this will definitely be one that I will keep on my shelf.
