Straight Rye Whiskey
No age statement
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Royal jelly and pulled pork. It is like the Queen hosting a Texan barbecue at Buck Pal. There is a smoothness to this spicy whiskey which is unusual, \nbut welcoming.
Palate: Smooth, and would be perfect over rocks with a game of cards. Cinnamon, nutmeg and drying oak balance out the sweet vanilla tones to give a dram that sits well on \nthe palate. \n
Finish: Spice, sweetness and honey.\n
Comment: A good example of a whiskey from the Americas which could be a sipper in its own right.
Nose: Dense and robust with treacle, dark rye bread, dark spices and dark herbs. Yes, it’s a bit dark! Sweet oak adds lightness and corn adds sweetness. With time earth, liquorice and roasted coffee.
Palate: Full of toffee, treacle, dark rye and dark wood spices. Hints of sweet corn and honey along with subtle vanilla, but the oak is becoming increasingly bitter.\n
Finish: Intense and mouth-watering. The bitter spices grab you by the doobries and refuse to let go!
Comment: It’s a bit hardcore this one. If you have an allergy to bitter spices then I’d pass.
