The nose is a chocolate croissant and black pepper. The taste is malty and juicy. There's an interesting melon or honeydew note. It's similar to juicy fruit gum. The finish is long. It lingers with smoke and pilsner beer.
I'll be honest, I was skeptical of this one. After tasting it, I was pretty blown away. I couldn't believe the complexities the tequila barrel added to this rye whiskey. I was expecting harsh and spice. What I got was chocolate and maltiness.
