Tasting Notes

Nose

Opens with rich, dense, toffeed oak and no shortage of spicy rye battling against the sweet oak. A touch of lazy corn, treacle and dusty spice comes through.

Palate

Gentle fat corn and soft, toasted toffeed oak. Followed by a bullet of bitter, spicy rye. Yes, siree Bob! That rye definitely dominates bringing with it some tongue tingling spice!

Finish

Long with the rye becoming more herbal and the toasted caramel, toffee note becoming a little burnt. But, damn, those spices are bitter!

Comment

Well, this certainly doesn’t lack personality!
