John Myer New York Straight Rye Single Barrel, 45%

Price: $42 Issue: Fall 2016 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

Fresh oak, sweet malt, caramel, and spiced cherries flirt with cracked pepper on the nose, while the smooth and sweet palate offers up clean flavors of citrus zest, butterscotch, drying oak, and saddle leather. Pleasantly herbal and licoricey on the palate with a perky cinnamon-spice finish. Nicely executed. 70% rye with certified organic grain. 375ml
