Aged: 6 months.
86 proof 43% Alcohol
On the Nose: Honeysuckle, hints of lemons and mild sugar sweetness
Taste: For this high rye the first thing I taste is anise with a strong wood flavor. The rye is mild with a subtle pepper finish that coats the entire tongue to let you know it is there. This is a perfect rye whiskey to introduce to someone that wants to try a rye for the first time.
Disclaimer: 10th Mountain makes one of my favorite rye whiskeys. The rye whiskey that I prefer is aged longer than 6 months. (this is all I had available to me in our neighborhood liquor store for this review, which quite possibly means I might have drank all the longer aged bottle that we purchased from the distillery). Please check out all of their aged ryes and do a side by side comparison to find your favorite. Cheers!
