Intro:

We select the highest-quality rye to create the World’s Best Rye 2016 IWSC. (2016 International Wine and Spirits Competition Best Rye Worldwide Whiskey) 

Review:

Nose - Incredible...terrific aroma with no offensive characteristics.  Truly amazing for 100 proof.  Not sure what other notes I can identify other than rye and a very subtle vanilla. 

Rub - Pleasant mixture of yeast and oak. 

Taste - A light heat to the lips and tip of the tongue.  A smooth cinnamon flavor once held on the tongue.  Easy finish with a light warming of the throat.  Vanilla appears on the 2nd and 3rd sips.  The nose beats the taste, but overall the taste is pretty decent too.  

Is it worth the $?

I got this for $34 and it is well worth it.
