Broad Branch Rye Fidelity 6 year old Single Barrel Straight Rye (Barrel No. 0027), 45%

Price: $53 Issue: Winter 2019 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Clearly young and grain-driven, this suffers from a few oddball aromas of pencil eraser and Play-Doh. The palate delivers heaps of sweetness, and an overload of vanilla, along with citrus oil and white pepper notes that succumb to a finish of new oak and mocha. Has merits, but lacking in structure and balance.
