Hillbilly Rye, 45%

Price: $25 Issue: Spring 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Youthful and fresh, with piney and grassy aromas, Lemon Pledge, fennel seed, and orange candy. The palate is thin and spiky; orange and lemon oils mingle with fresh herbs and tobacco leaf, but the effect falls short of cohesion. It finishes hot, with more tobacco, oak, and a hint of lemongrass.
