Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: A firm and mildly fruity nose with bags of spice,a little cinnamon and raison. Some wood comes through as well.
Palate: The rye hits fast and hard bringing wonderful almost eastern spices. There is an underpinning of sweetness as well.
Finish: Warming and dry.
Comment: One to try with Eastern food, am sure it shows promise.
8.5
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Effusive. Young and vibrant. Plenty of allspice and even a little sultana, toasty oak,cypress,coffee bean and rye flour. Dry.
Palate: Immediate impact.Zaps into the mouth with a major hit of ginger, cinnamon and coriander seed. Golden syrup like sweetness sits underneath. Good retro-nasal menthol note.
Finish: Hot,tingling and very long-lasting. Dries well.
Comment: A classic rye. Bartenders, this is what you need.
