Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Locke + Co. Distillery

Aroma: Baking bread. Caramel and Toffee notes. Light Brown Sugar. Hints of Cinnamon. Oaky and baking spices. Hints of dry fig, honey, and bananas. Palate: The rye whiskey starts with sweetness. Hints of cherry pits and vanilla, and then the spice of the rye comes in on the tip of my tongue, but it has a soft mouthfeel to it. Mid-palate, there are subtle notes of caramel and golden maple syrup with some tobacco and cinnamon notes as it becomes buttery smooth and well-rounded between the sweet and spicy characteristics. Finish: A nice clean finish with ginger, black pepper spice, and moderate warmth with a dry sawdust bite.
