One for rye fans.
1991, Single Barrel
No age statement
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Resinous, zesty and citric. Hickory, planed wood.
Palate: That same oily/zesty rye impact leathers the palate: lemon balm, citrus and excellent balance. In time opens to show chocolate, coconut, nutty fruit treacle.
Finish: Round and long.
Comment: One for rye fans.
Nose: Fragrant and slightly smoky. Orange-blossom. Potpourri. Acacia honey. Dryish.
Palate: Elegant. Silky. Flirtatious. Scenty (mandarin orange and mint). Feminine.
Finish: Disarmingly quick. A peck on the cheek. Slightly dizzying.
Comment: Where did she go? Will she return?
