This would kick some tail in rye based cocktails, but I had mine neat. It's just a phenomenal barrel proof rye whiskey. In the same league as many of the other great barrel proofs like correvecken, nadurra, and bookers. If you are down with cask strength then this is one to try/buy if you're lucky enough to find it... Now if only I can find some gst to try...

I'm not sure what idiosyncratic whiskey is, but this is absolutely perfect for an Old Fashioned.

A very interesting whisky. Exceptionally well made, idiosyncratic and unique. A must have for a Rye Whiskey drinker. I can't wait for a older version!
