This is a fairly classic rye expression, hitting all the usual highlights. The nose is lively with vanilla, caramel, and butterscotch, but heavy with an oilines — that lemon Pledge note I picked up in this whiskey’s 2017 release. But unlike in 2017, that slight industrial character fades more quickly on the tongue, letting the whiskey’s ample fruit, spice, and dessert-like notes shine. Some of these flavors are reprises of ’17 — apricots and sesame oil, particularly — though notes of toasted coconut, maple syrup, and a bit of toffee are new — and welcome — additions. The finish is soothing and lengthy, though a bit gummy at times, with some canned fruit notes taking hold, but it’s the spice bill — cloves, cinnamon, some red pepper — that finally shines through here and ultimately carries the day, the finish lasting for what seems like minutes.
