Loaded with lime, grapefruit, lemon, and a hint of ripe melon—followed by bold notes of roasted rye grains. A smooth, balanced palate of lemon drops, candied orange slices, deeper berry notes, and spice aplenty. The fruit wins out, creating a soft profile with hints of bitter chocolate and grain. A long explosion of balanced spice punctuates a finish of honeyed lemon, butterscotch, and rye grain. Smooth, tasty, and well-balanced.
