Tasting Notes: Reunion Straight Rye Whiskey – Single Barrel

Vital Stats: It’s a 100% rye mashbill at 126.94 proof. It’s 5 years old and has an MSRP of $55. It was distilled, aged and bottled in Lenex, Arkansas.

Appearance: Nice heavy bottle with dark amber bourbon inside.

Nose: Rich butterscotch, dark roses and bubble gum. A little oak on this robust whiskey.

Palate: POW, the first sip has mint and sweet rich spice. Buttery mouth coating feel. A tad bit of oak with a butterscotch and atomic fireball candies mixed. While the sting is spicy,it is still aromatic and beautiful.

Finish: Medium to Long with a nice deep hug.

Overall: Wow, what else can we say, it’s a buy for both of us. This is a fall or winter sipper that should be enjoyed slowly. Craft whiskey at its finest.
