Buckshee Straight Rye, 45%
Price: $42 ● Issue: Fall 2019 ● Reviewer: David Fleming
The nose starts out with orange blossom, lemon zest, licorice, iced tea, and confectioners' sugar, set against pine forest notes and a hint of minerality. The palate is light, with orange pekoe tea, vanilla, baked apples and cloves, and more pine. The finish is also light and somewhat brief, with pleasurable notes of spice, as well as figs, brown sugar, and an overlay of white pepper. Some interesting notes on offer.
