A big, rye experience.
18 Years Old
Year of Bottling
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Ripe bananas, new leather, black pepper, molasses and stem ginger. Developing black cherries.
Palate: Big, dry, very spicy rye grain notes. Water releases blackcurrants.
Finish: Quite long and drying, with a pleasing oak note. Pepper and menthol.
Comment: A big, rye experience.
Nose: Slightly dusty and dry, like an old church hall. Then sweetness emerges, with barbecued pineapple and black treacle too.
Palate: Warmed rye bread and melted butter, but then dry and spicy. Some dark fruit compote as well.
Finish: That dusty dry note and fresh oak.
Comment: Perfect for play with cocktails, great stuff really.
