Koval Rye Chicago, 40%

Price: $40.00 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: Lew Bryson

Smelling the rye from a foot away after pouring. Exceptionally clean aroma of grain; the oily/spicy rye notes come through clearly. Quite smooth. Not a lot of flavors: very focused on the rye itself, with grain and just a touch of mint. A long finish with sweet grain that slowly turns to mint in the end.
