(rī) is different than most rye whiskies in the respect that it is considerably lighter in all aspects. When we think of rye we typically look for a robust, rich whiskey with some spice but all of those profiles are softer in (rī) with the exception of the spice, which in here is slightly snappier and brighter. (rī) has a very sweet, citrus aroma with grainy background. Has an extremely smooth entry that leads to a dry, sunny sweet and sour palate with spicy notes and a very light rye. The finish is long and continuously sweet with very light spice throughout.
