  1. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Incredibly fresh rye with not that much spices, and virtually no sweetness. Although the complexity might not be that high, and there is a sense of a young age rye, I like it quite a lot.

      Incredibly fresh with lots of aniseed and mint. I must say I never encountered a rye that was this fresh and summery, albeit that I tested only a few. The freshness continues into a light caramel, mint chocolate, and an array of different types of liquorice and liquorice root. It might be simple and soft, and friendly, but I like it very much. There is also some ginger and cardamon to be found, which add a spicy side.

      Muchos mint. Well, we could have expected that based on the nose. Supplemented with liquorice, peppermint, mint chocolates and, surprisingly, chopped persil. Indeed it becomes a bit veggie in the development. Overall it is not overly complex, but very tasty and a good everyday no-nonsense rye.

      Mint, aniseed, liquorice and some spices.

    Blind tasted: I typed Blanton
    • Nose
      Leather, polish, citrus, pine resin, caramel, fresh mown grass, dried plums, charred and spicy wood. Full and balanced.
    • Taste
      Sweet malt with sparkling wood notes, leather, polish and some citrus. Unfortunately, these notes are accompanied by some sharpness.
    • Finish
      Long, with mild woody notes and leather. At the very end bitter.
