Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Good mint-toffee, rye aroma.
Palate: Good viscosity. Sweetish. Spicy. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Rich fruitcake.
Finish: Cigar smoke. Very late soothing warmth.
Comment: Certainly showing its age, but full of character.
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: One of the sweetest expressions of any rye; not as, literally, hard nosed as others, attractively perfumed with a hint of malt too.
Palate: Firmer on the palate than nose with the arrival of the rye delayed until the middle is neared.
Finish: Delicious sweet coating counterbalances the more bitter rye. Rumbling oak and liquorice are pleasantly muted.
Comment: A charming rye.
