This review is about six months late… sorry… and this isn’t even my first bottle I opened. I love this rye, contends with Thomas H Handy for my favorite rye of the year because of the price point… I posted a range of scores from a sample I had in August, but now that I’m done with the bottle, I’m giving the full one.
Great bottle, heavy cap… just looks great. Beautiful nose, love of sugar and spice coming through, Necco wafer, cinnamon stick, Chex mix, melted butter and almost no heat.
Really nice oily mouthfeel with enjoyable tannins up front with a flowing and spicy finish. Just a really nice pour here.
This might be my favorite Master’s Keep release, even if it’s $175. Worth grabbing a few. 95/100.
