79 General Review of Sagamore Spirit 8-Year-Old Rye Whiskey

The nose of Sagamore Spirit 8-Year-Old Rye is a little disappointing because there is little richness of aroma. You get a very mild rye spice and not much else. However, if you let the rye sit in a glass for a while, it begins to have a lovely floral bouquet.

You get a black pepper or peppercorn and rye spice on the palate. Still, the viscosity is slightly thinner than I would have expected for eight-year rye, particularly as I am comparing it to other ryes simultaneously.

The finish is a little strange. It's warm at first, in the back of the throat, but is not as warm as when it initially hits the esophagus.

I will revisit this in a few weeks.

Smell IS taste. I am just a guy who has been hit with the bourbon bug and who has come to the conclusion that life is too short to drink average tasting bourbons. Go Gators!
