Old Hamer Cask Strength Rye

Best Buy

The concentrated caramel aroma, plus a hint of alcohol, makes the nose twitch. It's clear from the first sip this is an overproof rye: the big, bold, relatively hot palate shows orange peel, almond and cinnamon red hots. Adding water settles it into an easier groove: almond melds with ginger and cinnamon spice, with a bit of oak reflected on the brisk, drying finish. Kara Newman
