Sagamore Spirit Double Oak Rye, 48.3%

Price: $69 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

A classic rye nose, with aromas of pancakes, butterscotch, vanilla, and baking spices. The palate balances sweetness and spices—a bit tannic from the extra maturation in toasted oak, but well-rounded with flavors of cherries, chocolate, and spice, leading into a gentle, satisfying finish.
