    Let’s take a whisky detour in an attempt to pick this session up a bit. Back I go to Skinner for rye. It was at the first Old & Rare Whisky Show in 2017 that Joseph [on the Skinner stand], presented those lucky enough, that glorious 1909 Overholt rye [WLP93] for a steal. Plenty has changed in the last three years with regards to awareness and price of all whisky.

    N: Fresh/modern/contemporary rye. From 1935 you say?
    T: You have to be kidding me?! This is [like] a full-on straight bitter > sweet contemporary rye slugger with leafy [curry-leaf] herbal tones.
    F: Light creamy/milky finish with ginger biscuits [Foz], and a tonic water [quinine] & mixed dried herb bitterness.

    C: Hard to believe this was bottled in the early 1940s. Extremely contemporary in style for a pre-war rye or any spirit frankly. Still, very nice.

    Unfortunately I did a full review and deleted this when for some reason 2 showed up on the bottle page, I deleted one but both vanished, gremlins again :(
    This is as much as can remember but obviously not as detailed as when I first completed as I took my time with it, apologies for that.
    One thing is for sure I doubt I will ever get to taste an old whisky like this again from the 1930's, a real pleasure.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Not like any other rye whisky I have had , more substantial in every respect but there are notes of charred wood, pecan pie, Turkish Delight, salted caramel, a little toffee, red velvet cake, warm pastries.
      A nice nose for sure.
    • Taste
      85 85
      This has a thicker mouthfeel than I expected, slight tobacco notes, salted caramel, a hint of blueberry, sweet tobacco called Spanish Gold which was confectionary from when I was a kid that I used to love.
      There is plenty of spice on show here but there is also a metallic note, is that a trait of rye whisky or is it the tin cap???
    • Finish
      84 84
      It is slightly sweet to the end and quite pleasant but then that metallic note returns
