    Quick hit review.

    Knockin' on Heaven's Door? Not yet, I have too many bottles to open! Fortunately, this rye won't stress your liver too much. Maple syrup, toffee and a touch of juniper form the nose, all very reminiscent of a candy store. Tastewise, baked apples, honey and fresh mint give way to emerging spices. I enjoy the bubble gum notes leading into the slightly dry finish. A good sipper, despite its simple structure.

    RATING: 3.5/5.0 stars ≙ 83 pts → ABOVE AVERAGE

    Curious to find out what the Old Bob have been up to.
    Wondering how involved he have been.

    The label says "smoother and more refined". Maybe that's why I find it to be a very gentle rye whiskey.
    Nothing too exciting or engaging, but it goes down very easy and I'm far from discouraged from trying other versions, or should I say other Doors.
    Not too expensive, so I'm pleased with the value for money ratio.

      Nice enough nose, I like it.
      Gingerbread and cinnamon.
      I don't get much vanilla, it's more a floral sweetness.
      Sour cream.
    • Taste
      85 85
      A bit more vanilla than on the nose, but it's not too sweet.
      Light peppery wood spice with a dry feeling.
      Spearmint bubble gum.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Fairly long and a bit drying.
      Some spice remains for a while, depending on the size of your sip.
