Gold Medal
The Spirits Business American Whiskey Masters 2016

Gold Medal and US Craft Other Grain Whiskey of the Year
– Wizards of Whisky World Awards 2016

Score: 9.0 "A well rounded number, full of intrigue.  Flavors are pronounced, but always in balance. Give this one a go!"
American Whiskey June 2018

Score: 88.5 "A truly huge rye... Through a combination of sheer delicious belligerence and chutzpah has your taste buds swooning. Great fun!"
– Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2014

"Notably dark and nutbrown in the glass, this unusual rye has rich aromas of dried date and molasses. The palate echoes those accents, showing dried date, fig, plum skin, molasses and toffee, with a long, rounded cocoa powder and clove fade. It's not overtly maple-y, but it's intriguing and would stand up well mixed with rich, sweet vermouths."
– Kara Newman, Wine Enthusiast, January 2020

"The 116 proof indicated on this bottle’s label prompts a double-take when sipping the whiskey. The alcohol burn is barely noticeable but the high ABV content does intensify the rye-forward profile and provides a never-ending finish. Subtle oak influence complements dried fruit and toffee notes."
– Tim McKirdy, Vinepair, October 2020
