  2. karloff did not rate this whisky Specialist

    I do like Rye and this is a really nice one . Enjoyed this generous sample courtesy of lincolnimp 
    • Nose
      Rich toffee, a touch of banana, chocolate orange, honey and vanilla. 
    • Taste
      Smooth and spicy with mint, dried fruit, ripe nectarine and sherbet dip. Really is easy on the palate. I could imagine this would be a good mixer. 
    • Finish
      Medium to long finish with orange and lots of spice on the death. 

  3. lincolnimp scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    The nose is floral & honeyed with a little flapjack.

    The palate has some presence but there is a chemically bitterness that I do not like at first but it does improve but then its metallic, its just the rye profile I feel.

    I think its above average for sure, and the more you have the better it gets but I could not drink a lot of it.

    Nice to try different things :)

  4. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A very tasty Rye, interesting without too much attention. The nose is one of the most pleasant and sweetest I have for a Rye without losing his character.
    • Nose
      In the first moment actually very vanillig, indefinable sweetness of pancakes or lollipops, it warms him something and gives him time comes the Rye but still out, very nice cinnamon, gingerbread, waffles and brown sugar appear, a bit dusty cupboard
    • Taste
      Crispier than intended by the nose, nutmeg, cinnamon, a fruity sweetness is present, orange, orange bitters, maggi, black pepper and oak, rye fights with the sugar
    • Finish
      Almost a little apple peel, bitter oak and nutmeg, medium long
