It's amazing how many emails I received from customers about our first cask, asking whether there were any dill notes, that classic herbaceous character that exudes from a potent rye whiskey distillation. That initial barrel was a round and oak-driven rye whiskey, lots of sweet grains and vanilla, but this second cask release is loaded with dill, lots of pepper, and all of that lip-smacking herbacousness that makes rye whiskey so distinct in the eyes of whiskey aficionados. That's not to say it's lacking in oak, vanilla, or richness. There's plenty of that, but the rye itself is the star here, not the wood. It's all dialed up to 11 at 116.2 proof as well, so it practically explodes on your tongue.
