Whisky Reviews for Prichard's Rye Whiskey

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.10 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    The nose is deliciously spicy and sweet associated (honey, fruit). After that, it's the full spiciness you can expect from a rye whiskey. It's quite decent and lovely for occasional drinking, but no candidate for a list of essential whisk(e)ys.
    • Nose
      It has a sweet variant of the typical rye whiskey smell, which is spicy (it reminds me of juniper and pine needles), but it's honeyed, fruity (sweet orange, apricot, banana, papaya), a little on the sugary corn-side, plus some wood influence (fresh wood staves, resin)
    • Taste
      A bit thin, less sweet than the nose suggest. It's rather spicy actually: juniper, clove, pepper and a hint of cinnamon. The honey plays 2nd violin, the fruitiness has mellowed down to the background strings.
    • Finish
      Rather short, in which the spiciness of the taste is continued and accompanied by some ginger. It reminds me of some old cough syrup with a lot of herbs in it.

  2. Shane_IL scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Could do with a higher ABV, feels a bit weak, but has some decent complexity.
    • Nose
      Varnished wood. Honey. Vanilla. Hints of spice. White pepper. Cloves. Macadamias. Bitter citrus. Hibiscus. Brown sugar. 
    • Taste
      A bit weak. Wood polish. Maple syrup. Banana. Citrus peel. Cinnamon. Vanilla. A bit of an odd fruity note I can't pin down. 
    • Finish
      Medium. A bit gentle but fairly long lasting. More polished wood and that fruity note lingers. Bit of peach iced tea.
