Copper Fox Rye Spirit, 62%

Price: $24 Issue: Winter 2012 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

New make fruit—pear, stewed apple—and rye spice in a hot, clean nose. That's pretty much what you get in the mouth, too, with some dry paper notes, and a sweet finish. For some reason, I really want to try mixing this with Dr. Pepper. This is definitely a mixing spirit, mountain-style.
