Saint Lawrence Spirits Rye Knot, 45%

Price: $42 Issue: Summer 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

The nose is layered with mature baking spices, cacao nibs, tobacco barn, Cherry Coke syrup, praline, pistachio, and dusty oak. Spiced and herbal on the palate, with bracing oak, coffee with almond cream, roasted nuts, dark chocolate, cinnamon, licorice, and peppermint, all pillowed by a creamy texture. It finishes with minty dark chocolate, espresso, leather, and integrated oak. No need for an after-dinner coffee; this'll do. (2,000 bottles)
