Distillery Tasting Notes

Made by Long Island Spirits

Spicy, earthy oiled leather and pipe tobacco are accompanied by dates and apple tart tatin on the nose. Grain-forward and toasted on the palate, stone fruits and honey come forward before touches of white pepper, brown sugar, and rolled oats on the finish. Crisp fruity sweetness on the nose, followed by spice, caramel, vanilla, and blackberry on the palate; lauded by a royal symphony of long, warm rye-ness, with a toasty, velvety finish.
