Overall: In case you are reading one of my reviews for the very first time, it's no secret I love toasted finishes. This RY3 Cask Strength Toasted Barrel is no exception. Phenomenally blended Rye with the perfect finish. See what I did there? Without stating the obvious, buttered and toasted rye bread was the first and prominent note I pulled on the nose but that quickly morphed into the more distinct notes of roasted marshmallows, dark chocolate and even a touch of fresh smashed mint leaf. Even with those delectable flavors, the finish is where it's all at for me. The hug, the viscous coating, the baking spices...::chef's kiss:: With the cooler season inching more and more upon us, this is going to be a trusty companion on the porch with a medium to heavy cigar. I've already concluded through extensive personal research that toasted finishes require at least a medium bodied cigar to pull the maximum flavors. Now, pardon me while I continue my research...for science, of course.


Karthik & Matt, thank you kindly for getting this bottle to me to try. You guys are Phenomenal! As always, my reviews are always unbiased and couldn't be any more genuine.
