Whisky Reviews for Hiram Walker Special Old Rye Whisky

- This is a nice soft and sweet whiskey with excellent complex notes and expertly blended. In my opinion, traditional blending methods holds this whiskey back. Does deliver for a bottomshelf whiskey.
Charred aged vanilla, dusty grain, raisin, spiced rum, dark spices and fruit, old oak and burned caramel. Really a nice noise.
Sweet raisin with other dry fruits, toasted caramel, amber rum, some spices moving to bittering oak and drying. Very well balanced, but falls flat compared to the noise. The 40% isn't helping.
Rum, sweet oak, cola and a little bittering with decent grip, Not long nor short. Keeps falling flat though transitions.
- It's a shame that it's too soft for me to sow a bit of alcohol, to make it stronger and smell, and it would be great whiskey. For me another alternative to common drinks at Ballantina Finest level.
The smell is light, with a hint of skin in the style of some Caribbean rums, a pinch of vanilla sweetness. (75 b)
The first impression exactly in fine style as an aroma, then it will be highlighted when it comes to language. Skin, wood touch, light bergamot or sandalwood flavor. (77 b)
