Notes: Brown sugar at first, then gives way to bold rye spice. Apple pie, brown butter, sourdough and clove. Cinnamon, some praline, long rye forward finish. Reminds me if Pikesville let you do single cask at barrel proof. A dream. Back to reality: moderate finish with a hint of pear and apple, more maple, and some tiramisu paired with pepper and clove
