This is the aged version of our Double Gold medal winning Wry Moon, rye white whiskey. American rye whiskey distilled from malted rye and chocolate rye.
Nose - No astringency and really no spice. Forward on the chocolate rye aroma.
Rub - Again, there is the rye....almost like nosing a loaf of rye bread. Not really a whole lot going on in the complexity arena. One dimensional with the aroma.
Taste - No spice hardly until the finish...which gives a smidgen on the tongue and throat. There is the chocolate....dark chocolate flavors and there is the rye. I don't mind it....it isn't knocking my socks off though.
Is it worth the $?
I wanted my first Corsair experience to be fantastic since the distillery is about an hour from where I grew up. This didn't do it...but I am willing to try some more of their products. I paid $35....not my flavor profile so I say no...but it may be up your alley.
