Woody Creek Straight Rye, 45%

Price: $45 Issue: Winter 2017 Reviewer: Jeffery Lindenmuth

An enjoyable 2 year old from Colorado, the sweet stone fruit nose, laced with mint and herb garden, betrays this spirit as a bit young and primary. Still a touch hot and lacking some intensity, but pleasing clover honey sweetness on the palate and long, warming spice with a cocoa finish bode very well for the future.
