Much like its younger iteration, Roaming Man packs a punch. At 119.6 proof, its heavy rye spice backbone is evident throughout its sip. The whiskey still has some grainy notes present, although these are showing signs of retreating as the oak becomes more established. Its oily mouthfeel in conjunction with its proof helps highlight its raisin, plum, and port-like flavor profile, but more development is needed to tame the grain and intensify the oak. Sugarlands will have something special here in due time.
