Overall: The extra oak finish creates all the fun here. The sweetness cuts off at the perfect time allowing the rye spices to kick in. I’m all about comparing what I taste to other things I’ve tasted. Palate association, if you will. Sagamore Double Oak is no exception. The best association I could make with this pour is: Almond Roca.
It’s no secret that I gravitate towards Double Oak, Toasted Barrels, Charred Oak, etc. The extra vanilla, caramel and brown sugars seem to shine through and stand tall.
