Dancing Goat Limousin Rye, 46%

Price: $45 Issue: Fall 2018 Reviewer: Adam Polonski

A Wisconsin rye aged in used American oak and new French oak, then finished in a Limousin oak solera. Heavily perfumed; incense and sandalwood on top of leather, gentle wood, and pleasingly soft rye spice. Golden raisins, white flowers, and violets on the palate, with a sweet and balanced finish. Softer and less assertive than traditional rye whiskeys, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
