Review #1483 | Rye Review #643

Distiller: Heaven Hill

Bottler: Heaven Hill

Brand: Heaven HIll

Selection: N/A

ABV: 52.5% ABV

Age: 8 years

Nose: Sweet cream, herbal spice, faint vegetal notes. Sweet honey, toffee, rye spice, brown sugar, coffee and nice oak.

Taste: Medium mouth feel, growing thicker with time. Honey, toffee, lots of spice. Super spicy, loaded with clove, pepper, honey, toffee and some dirty tobacco. Yummy, metallic.

Finish: Long, powerful and sweet. Herbal, spicy, oaky.

Overall: This is a monster in so many ways. Though the finish lets it down, the nose and palate come to play ball and there is no denying how well they perform.

Thanks for reading!
