Roknar Rye Whiskey 750ml
FRoknar is a young whiskey with very clean lines. It is simple, elegant, and uncomplicated—and entirely delicious. Far North Spirits deserves a pat on the back for taking control of what can be a complex and convoluted system, and making a whiskey whose intentionality is obvious and whose production is crystal clear—and which is delicious to boot. Far North Roknar rye whiskey is just one of many appealing-looking drams coming out of Far North Spirits in Hallock, MN. Far North Spirits is distilling vertical integration to a T; with its “field-to-glass” ethic, Far North takes the grain-to-glass idea one step further, farming their own grains from which all of their spirits are distilled. All of their spirits (save their Alander spiced rum, which is made from domestic sugar) are made from non-GMO AC Hazlet Winter Rye. 80% of Roknar’s mash bill, Hazlet is a rye that was developed in the ‘90s, and which fares very well in cold Canadian winters due to its shorter stature and ability to avoid tipping over in extreme weather conditions. Considering Far North’s geography, choosing grains that can survive Canadian winters must have been imperative to their success. The corn that makes up 10% of Roknar’s mash bill is a mix of Blue River organic corn, and Minnesota 13, a non-GMO heirloom yellow dent corn, a variety that in 1936 “was the most popular variety in the US Northern Corn Belt”.

Nose - Vanilla buttercream new cut youthful oak sawdust cardomom? Taste - Certainly taste the youthful soul nibble in advance youthful oaky severe vanilla straightforward scorched cinnamon mouth drying cardamom sharp therapeutic clashing. Finish - Waiting youthful soul liquor consume/warmth gently oaky harsh softly unsavory therapeutic splenda zest. Score - 66/100 Last Musings - This felt like an extremely hurried rye. The shading on it was exceptionally light and I don't know whether my example had the cognac completing on it yet on the off chance that there was they most likely just indicated the soul the cognac barrel and called it done. Nose smelled unequivocally of recently made oak barrels and that excessively sweet yet ethanol new make. Tasted especially equivalent to well. Finish was very horrendous with youthful soul everywhere. There are a few things to be said about appropriately maturing in a full barrel and to let time do its enchantment. I feel this was very surged only for getting an item out there. In the event that they keep on microbarrel I think I'll avoid this however perhaps I'll offer it one more opportunity on the off chance that they really discharge an appropriately matured item in full measured barrels.

This is a decent taste. On the button it has a delicate vanilla note. The front end is marginally sweet not off putting (I dont like sweet bourbons). The center as another client nailed the descriptor resembles smores. In any case its complex with a slight flavor on the completion. Group 23 bottle 663

Tasting Notes
Nose
A veil of vanilla and white pepper first. Behind this I detect earthy notes, root vegetables straight from the soil. With time hints of honey and red berries.
Taste
Medium to full body. Peppery and creamy honey. Real nice! A second wave provides unsalted peanuts, vanilla and notes of ginger. Red berries here as well.
Finish
Medium long finish. The rich, creamy honey lingers, the pepper does fade away though. It is now a little green in character - maybe a touch of the vegetables from the nose. Sawdust and nuts in the back.
