Looking at the reviews, I guess this Rye wood finish is a "love-it-or-hate-it" whisky. I must say it is pretty good to me.
Nice and unusual sweet nose. Not had this before. I guess this is the Rye wood doing its work.
Oil and thick taste. Good mixture of spices and fruitiness. I like the 48% abv. Good and solid body for a 9 year old whisky.
Medium long to long. Very dry in the end.
Conclusion: I like it. Does this bottle already have Billy Walker's signature?
