A good not great rye. A little rough and too expensive compared to other better rye whiskey. Bullei 95 rye and Knob Creek to name a couple.

A good beginner rye. Not as spicy and bold as I like my ryes. Very light but smooth. Should be a couple bucks cheaper.

Light bodied with a syrupy like fruit character and a fair alcohol presence that is warming and smooth. I have had on the rocks and with ginger beer. $20 in my local. good for old fashioneds and the like.

I agree completely with "Irishman" that this rye is "light and slightly spicy with a smooth, full finish," but can't you say the same about ginger ale? This is "Rye Lite" with as little rye spice as it can have and still be a rye. There are bourbons with more rye flavor (Bulleit comes immediately to mind). At less that one-third the price, Old Overholt has more rye bite, though it's not as smooth and only 80 proof. A pleasant enough sip, but at about half the price both Russell's Reserve 6-yr and (especially) Bulleit 95 Rye have superior flavor, body, and smoothness.

Decent Rye. Missing a lot of the assertive spiciness found in many cheaper and better rye whiskeys. Would make a good first rye for the uninitiated. Priced a little high in my opinion.

As smooth as a rye can get. Go get yourself some Benedictine and treat yourself to a top shelf Monte Carlo. Perfection.

This rye whiskey is fantastic. Light and slightly spicy with a smooth, full finish. Definitely worth a little extra money for this bottle.

This rye will change anyone's mind about rye whiskey for the better. Most people who have tried rye in the past 40 years or so would rather drink broken glass than rye because of their experience of the commonly available ryes.Rye and rye drinkers had been written of by major whiskey producers years ago.
