Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Dry and dusty, those classic rye traits. Has some mellow spices and sweetness to it too.
Palate: A short dryness laced with sour fruit, cherries, plum skins. Acetone.
Finish: Sweet with walnut and dates.
Comment: Shows off those classic rye qualities. Magnificent.
8.5
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fruity but with a sour note. Cider apple, even cider cellar with a note of damp wood. In the back, curry. Keeps sour. Obviously a high content of rye.
Palate: Crisp. In the same key as the nose. Sour plum compote. Varnish. Hint of Turkish delight.
Finish: Sweeter. Slightly nutty. Caramelised pecan. Lingering.
Comment: Another Rye Whiskey? The nose is a bit dour but the palate is more balanced. An interesting character.
