Tasting notes
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: Needs water to open it but when you do it bursts out at you. Big fruits, saddlewood and musk,like a powerful and masculine.
Palate: Powerful fruity notes hold their own against powerful tannins,big sweet vanilla notes pit themselves against spicy rye.
Finish: Long,warm,woody and wonderful.
Comment: Sazerac has been monopolising the rye end of the American whiskey market. If rye really makes a comeback, this is its John The Baptist.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. A bit sharp. Sour fruit. Blackcurrant.Black pepper.
Palate: Rich,deep. Warm blackcurrant pie without the custard. Damp musty flavour.A lot to swallow !
Finish: Hot slightly burning. Spicy and framed by oak.
Comment: A broad shouldered whisky. Not for the fainted-hearts.Some like it hot.
