Appearance: Luscious, tawny, perfectly clear.
Nose: Sweet butterscotch with lots of lemon, citrus. Light notes of ginger, honey, and Fuji apple pervade.
Palate: Caramel-forward, candy-like but with the obvious bite and heat of a rye. Young wood (sawdust) and gently roasted almonds dance alongside specks of Meyer lemon. The body is medium-thin, lingering slightly but not blasting your palate. The overall mix is good, but it does have a sharp, alcoholic bite at the end.
