Whisky Reviews for Koval Single Barrel - Rye

- This is my first foray into Rye Whiskey as part of a US-Whiskey discovery program. To this end I am being guided by Roskrow's Whiskey America book and the lineup suggestion of the kind provider of the tasted samples. Roskrow states this to be surprisingly gentle, fish, sweet and approachable. I would fully agree with him - not knowing what to expect of "traditional" rye whiskey as a caveat. On the nose it was unpleasant though, again paint thinner and a sting in the nose. Leaving it to stand for a while the attack on the nose was even more pronounced, hitting me right at the back of the head. Taste was then surprisingly pleasant in line with the description but also not dissimilar to Koval's Single Barrel bourbon (WB 161972). Not sure if that's a good thing?
