  • Tasting Notes: Rich and loaded with dessert and rye spice, this is a punchy rye at first that gives way to pleasant dessert character and baking spice. The nose is packed wall to wall with candied ginger, maple, a hint of toasted caramel, light herbal rye spice and a pinch of pepper. The palate is rich and satisfying, 56% presents a pleasant viscosity, tons of maple, another dash of black pepper and some black tea and orange peel. Long, satisfying finish that's citrusy and sweet. While our first Piggyback was well suited for a Manhattan, I gave this a go in a Boulevardier, and may never look back.
