  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    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.

    The Heaven's Door is golden in color. After the first swivel in the glass, the first aromas rise in the nose. Caramel and orange peel. With a sniff comes something chili and something herbaceous, which I can't exactly define. A little later comes a touch of leather and typical vanilla.

    The first taste is caramel, cocoa and a hint of roasted nuts. Nicely integrated vanilla with a hint of spice.

    In the finish, then caramel and oak with a hint of citrus.

    This was a sample courtesy of Peatbogger.
    This is straight down the line rye and it's maybe a little bit pricy for me but you are not getting ripped off.
    I would have a bottle of this on my optic for visitors.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Instinctive Rye nose and it's not bad but not that strong either.
      Cinnamon, apples, ginger cake, stewed vegetables, pine and pepper.
    • Taste
      85 85
      This is a very easy sipper and it has all the rye qualities you would expect but not all you would want.
      So it's safe and would appeal to a first time rye drinker.
      Easy on the palate and just a decent amount of spice.
      Nutmeg and herbal tea.
    • Finish
      85 85
      A medium finish and I can't really fault it because it doesn't diminish and there isn't any off notes.

    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 some 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.
