Overall: Setting up for a slight draw on the tee-box, I didn't know what to expect with this offering from Bushwood Spirits. This one landed in a very safe spot in the center of the green. It's been a while since I've had a pepper tone change from white to dark, but this works quite well. The chocolates and dark fruits also compliment this rye quite well on the palate.
I can see this rye being quite versatile. Neat, on a rock, in a cocktail, you name it. At 95 proof, this one goes down quite easily and may just be the perfect birdie juice for the fall golf season.
As I mentioned in a previous Bushwood Spirits review, this bottle design is top-shelf. From the crystal golf ball topper to the label, it's just too difficult not to reach for this one.
Thank you once again to the great folks at Bushwood Spirits for providing this bottle and keeping the fun in this hobby. Give their website a look by clicking here
