Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by New Riff Distilling LLC ~ New Riff Distilling

Nose: Clean ripe oak, controlled & even. With time, develops waxy/honeyed (yet not sweet) fruits. Water yields colorful (black-blue-red skinned) rye fruits and spice. Taste: Rounded and full-bodied, midpalate of spiced fruit compote. Finish: Very long and simply gorgeous, as the fruits are subtly shaded with many spices (clove, wintergreen, nutmeg).
