Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Big and perfumed: dried lavender, honey, cake mix, black cherry and rye pepperiness.
Palate: Huge, heavy and oily, then the acidic rye blasts its way in like Jesse James and takes control souring things up and giving a powerful mouthful that balances sweet and savoury beautifully.
Finish: Long with wonderful balance.
Comment: A classic big-boned style that gets maximum extraction of flavours.
8.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Molasses. Hickory. Briar. Herbal, tea-like, rye notes.
Palate: A powerful whiskey. Spicy rye against a big corn background. Some malt, too.
Finish: Vanilla. Spiced rum. Charred oak.
Comment: The wildness of 101, tempered with the extra rye, makes for a very distinctive whiskey.
