  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Another rye courtesy of karloff.
    I enjoy rye because it usually is a bit more fierce than bourbon. I loved this one because it was not. Go figure :-)
    • Nose
      88 88
      Lusciously tempting sweetness with that slightly bolder edge of rye providing the firmness.
      A little fruit and some very exclusive hard wood polish.
      Very well integrated alc.
    • Taste
      89 89
      It delivers on the nose.
      Sweet and savory. Mouth coating.
      It has the tell tail of rye, yet it's gentle, "posh" and a very easy sipper.
      Blood orange, sugared coffee.
    • Finish
      88 88
      It sits very well with a slow almost controlled fade.

    I had a bottle of this a good while back and it pleases me that the standard is still high and the price is still very reasonable. For Rye fans this is a must and still a great looking bottle.
    • Nose
      89 89
      This has such a mellow nose, you could dive into it.
      For a Rye you can actually smell the corn.
      Bubblegum, nectarine, soft jelly sweets, the ones you get at the cinema in the pick and mix.
      Pomegranate seeds and kiwifruit.
    • Taste
      90 90
      The taste is just as Mellow and at 45% it goes down really easy like a five dollar , well I will let you fill in the blank.
      You would expect a lot of spice with a rye but this is quite calm.
      It has quite a fresh taste on the palate, like mint fresh.
    • Finish
      88 88
      A nice medium finish and the Rye just settles down on the tongue and if you are a fan just savour it.

    This bottle was very hard to get a hold of so my wife says but it was well worth the wait. I have tasted a good few Rye`s now and this is one of the best. I loved the old style shape of the bottle with its very long neck.

  9. Ainulindale scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    Interesting dram. Very silky and smooth yet it has a sometimes too overpowering damp earth taste to it to be very good to me.
    • Nose
      84 84
      A very sweet nose, all about marshmallows, grapes and strawberries as well as caramel with vanilla behind
    • Taste
      78 78
      In the mouth very smooth, all about damp earth and vanilla, spices like ginger, cloves and cinnamon at the very end, silky mouthfeel
    • Finish
      78 78
      Finishes on earth and ripe fruits sprinkled with spices.

  10. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      immediately very sweet and associations with gummy bears, in addition to some red fruits and also a ripe red apple, removed also a few herbs / grasses. Over time, even a slightly earthy note is added.
    • Taste
      pleasant tingling, neat sweetness and also strength. The 45% are great. Also in the mouth I find the red fruits and the apple again. The whiskey covers the whole mouth.
    • Finish
      Long. Wow so far I had only smokers so far.
