Sagamore Spirit Straight Rye, 41.5%

Price: $40 Issue: Spring 2017 Reviewer: Fred Minnick

Beginning with charcoal smoke, oak, herbs, and vanilla, grains set in, in the form of cornbread, rye muffin, and spelt pasta. This 3 year old lacks the mouthfeel or richness one hopes for in a rye. The finish is flat and short. This is an okay cocktail mixer, but lacks the oomph for a sipper.
