Tasting notes:

The Liquid - An 11 year old Kentucky Owl Straight Rye finished for over one year in Bayou Rum XO barrels.

Nose - A robust toasted rye bread with notes of farm fresh sweet butter, hints of cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg fill out the alluring aroma.

Taste - Initial mouth feel is a robust, flavorful straight rye whiskey. In addition to the rye, there is an immediate sensation of sweet butter combined with allspice. The sweetness of the Bayou Rum XO finish mingles across the tongue with the rye and spices, for a fresh unique flavor. Very pleasant, with a robust but soft mouth feel. Finish is smooth, with the sweetness of butter and allspice giving way to a long and pleasant nutmeg sensation in the throat.
