Though reticent at first, the nose opens up to honey, caramel, and some pleasant mustiness, followed by a late wave of sweet and savory spices. There's an undercurrent of smoke, too, which transfers smoothly onto the palate, though it's overpowered by just-burnt cinnamon sugar toast and slightly charred sugar cookie. Fig Newton and raisin are also here in spades, creating a dark, fruity experience. The finish is short and hot, and it delivers a smooth hit of menthol.
The nose has a hint of peat smoke along with baking spices, honey, caramel, vanilla, and a hint of anise. The taste is thick and chewy with good spicy notes of clove, cinnamon, and allspice along with vanilla and honey. The finish is long with gently fading spices and touches of honey and anise. Tuthilltown Spirits has not distilled a peated rye whiskey, but it is done the next best thing by finishing this one in casks previously used to mature peated Scotch whisky.
