Flavor Profile/Tasting Notes: MGP high rye offers a medium body, column distilled bourbon with key notes of grassy rye to break up the sweetness. There is a soft vanillic creaminess from the 4 years aged in #3 new char oak barrels. Butterscotch and red apple warms on the nose.
The palate offers a soft and sweet baking spice flavor upfront. This slowly evolves to a more grainy backbone. The corn never gets over-dominant thanks to the slight spicier peaks of rye, with a wisp of thyme. The medium length finish has a balanced oak component, complete with cream soda softness.
