Whisky Reviews for James E. Pepper 1776 Straight Rye Whiskey
12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.35 points
- Well, he has at least strength and character. In this respect, acceptable, drinkable whiskey.
Cereals, vanilla, pungent alcohol. Then floral and later quite spicy and cinnamon.
Orange. Burns fast on the tongue. Rye. Peppery.
Finish quickly with spices and wood and after-burning alcohol.
- My first rye whiskey is young, simple, but interesting, the most pleasant impression is produced by the fragrance - sour-salted, then very primitive, but does not cause rejection, it is suitable for pure consumption, drink, not spirtuzen.
Clear, juicy, various pickles - cucumbers, grape leaves, mushrooms; needles of larch, raw grain, weak lacquer notes, raw rust, sour-milk tones - something like ayran, very fresh and saturated.
Watery, woody-lacquered, soft enough, salted with a mixture of mint and eucalyptus, sorrel, a little oak.
Varnish-coniferous with notes of resin, young shoots of pine, sour-salty notes in the continuation of the aroma, long enough and pleasant.
- Rye as I do not like him exactly. Do not misunderstand, like to mix and exactly that can be ideal for drinks to "deluden", but absolutely absolutely disgusting.
Balsamico en masse, exactly the note I hate at Rye's, aromatic-strong almost unpleasant, cloves, spices (for a better definition too strong), cocoa
Wort! Black pepper, clove, lavender, rye, juniper, alcohol, oak
Medium long, here vinegar again plus rye and alcohol
- A very simple but rather enjoyable dram.
Wood, a hint of varnish, some spiciness of pepper and ginger, tons of sugar, slight fruity note and alcohol shining through.
Wood strikes first, then the sweetness of white sugar takes over. This is gently counteracted by the wood spices, more ginger, pepper and some cinnamon.
Quite short, on spices and sugar.
- Its spiciness reminded me of the gin's guminess.
- Aroma: spicy, floral, vanilla crisp, peach, apricot
Taste: spicy, spicy, black pepper, chili, dry, rye, sweet, vanilla, caramel
Finish: medium in length, first fruity-sweet, then spicy and spicy, ginger
- 1776 Straight Rye Whiskey, 50% alc. original bottling
Nose: Fruity, sweet and slightly spicy. With rye, hay and citrus flavors, looks very floral. Behind it mix peach, dried apricots in the muesli and cloves, also a hint of lemon. Palate: Significantly spicy than in the nose. Nutmeg, cloves, pepper and soft chili. In addition, sweet honey tones, an unspecified fruitiness and some caramel, maybe even milk chocolate. The seasoning dominates significantly.
Finish: Long, sparkling and spicy. With hot pepper and a little chili.
Conclusion: Rye - as he must be. Not just for cocktails but also a pure pleasure.
