As whiskeys go, this was certainly one of the most unusual-- and creative-- whiskeys I've had the pleasure to taste. The first sniff (or two) offers up lots of wildflower honey and hops, followed by rye bread dough, dark chocolate nibs, aromatic eucalyptus leaves, maybe even a touch of bergamot oil. The palate entry is slightly bitter from the hops, but is quickly masked by florals, vanilla custard, cedar chest, rye spiciness, candied ginger and fresh orange zest. Worth it? Absolutely. Not your everyday whiskey, mind you, but certainly one to enjoy for a long time.
