A pale tawny with straw highlights. High concentrations of bright, fruity esters lend a perfume like character to the aroma. Honeydew melon and plum sit alongside a slice of ripe apricot resting out in the sun. The underlying rye is revealed by a sea-like salinity, tarragon, and elderflower. Sweet and juicy, Seagrass opens on pear, lycee, and white grapefruit. Classic rye flavors of cinnamon, rosemary, fennel seed, and rosehip aren't far behind. Unctuous texture and sandy tannin are complemented by a delicate astringency so common to Canadian whiskeys. Fresh and clean, but the persistent tannin and astringency focus the powerful burst of camphor, chalk dust, and scorched earth.

Wine Enthusiast 90 points This is a rye whiskey finished in casks that previously held Martinique rum, apricot brandy and Madeira, bottled at cask strength. The end result is intriguing and weird: cinnamon and sherried fruit aromas lead into a palate marked by stone fruit, honey and plenty of cinnamon sting.
