The Rye Whiskey aromas are uniquely subtle and meld well with the silky, dense Syrah fruit. Hints of cigar box and fresh leaf tobacco emerge with each sip. These intense dusty black fruit flavours intermingle warmly with the Rye Whiskey flavours. It tastes like a sumptuous wine, but one transformed into a different animal by the Rye Whiskey aromas and tastes. There are more delicious, chewy, bacon fat tones with deep blackberry and black raspberry jam highlights.
