Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Rich dried fruits. Chocolate. Sweet peppers.
Palate: Clean, rich. Cocoa. Candied orange peels. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Very spicy. Soothing.
Finish: Lingering dry spiciness.
Comment: A hundred American proof makes for a powerful whisky, but this is big and bold in flavour, too. I don't remember it being such a sensuous whiskey. A reborn giant? I'll look for it on Rittenhouse Square next time I'm in Philadelphia.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fat and sweet: caramel, toffee apple, Caramac bars, cocoa powder, toast, but no discernible rye...
Palate: ...though this appears on the initially thick, dried fruit palate.
Finish: Sour though, almost metallic. Like chewing a coin.
Comment: The higher alcohol helps but there's still a lack of rye's full-on intensity. MOR
