Celebrates the part the rye and malt notes can play against the more neutral background of corn. Almost too complex to be true.
1990, Single Barrel
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: A stunning herbal start blossoms into a ginger-honey sweetness.
Palate: A fresh and clean start allows the corn to develop beautifully before the rye takes hold.
Finish: Medium length only, quality outstanding with fresh rye bringing the curtain down.
Comment: Celebrates the part the rye and malt notes can play against the more neutral background of corn. Almost too complex to be true.
Nose: Sweet, fresh. Spearmint. Allspice.
Palate: Very clean malty sweetness. Soft, light, syrupy. Clean citrus flavour. Seems at first like candied fruits, then becomes more ethereal. Orange flower water?
Finish: Delicately dry. Slightly sharp.
Comment: Very different in style. Liqueur-ish.
