It seemed to have a bit of a bite/spice that built and the warmth of the finish turned to a bit of a burn if drank to quickly.
Anybody know anything about this dram?
I have the Origin and I don't particularly like it...bought it on a reco from my go to guy, and still remains the only dud he steered us towards.

Winner winner chicken dinner...its about $55 by me. Where in Md...driving to SC this summer, and if its on the way, I'd make that our vaca bottle.
Last night had the Flora & Fauna that came from the UK. It was good, but I was under impressed based on all the high marks the internet folk give it.
Today's fare was strictly American...Templeton Old Rye with lunch, Corsair's Triple Smoke Single Malt and St George's Single Malt for before dinner...
I liked all three...my previous, and only other, experience with Rye was Widow Jane, and it was so harsh. This Templeton is so much easier to drink!
