A.D. Laws Secale Straight Rye, 50%

Price: $75 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Same specs as the Secale Rye Single Barrel. Grassy nose, spicy hard candy, hot mint, and split-rock dryness. Dry rye grain, a tweak of bitterness, and alcohol heat. Finish is a bit oily/sticky. Good example of the modern MGP-inspired rye interpretation: grain-forward and no-nonsense.
