Type: Rye Whiskey

Bottler: Nelson's Green Brier Distillery

Score: 93 Points

This Rye whiskey is distilled for Nelson Bros. at Bardstown Bourbon Company, and the nose has nice touches of baking spices, toasted oak, honey, and vanilla. The taste has spicy notes of cinnamon, black pepper, and allspice that fade slowly to reveal notes of honey, butterscotch, and toasted oak. The finish is long, spicy, and bold. (October, 2023)
