Gin clear
Nose

A whiff of menthol and mint, before the oak takes over. Some mild spices (nutmeg and cloves), as well as vanilla, and just a hint of orange peel and sour apples. Not as intense as other ryes.

Taste

Lots of resin and wood shavings, followed by a touch of menthol. Plenty of nutmeg and cinnamon too, before settling into sweeter territory (marshmallows).

Finish

Short to medium in length. Spicy at first, soft oak, then sweet syrup.

Comments

Not much wrong with this. An easy sipper, despite being quite woody and spicy. It's nice.

Duo chocolat caramel au nez. C'est vraiment un rye ? Quelques notes de solvant qui évoquent plutôt un bourbon. De la menthe ou du thym ? En bouche, plutôt fin et fluide. Notes solvatées. Assez aqueux pour 45%. Finale facile. C'est complètement buvable, mais on est loin d'un rye finalement.


Enthousiasme 3/5

Nose

Très léger aux premiers abords, il est difficile de percevoir les premières notes volatiles. Ensuite on est clairement sur un nez “fruité”, je dirais même sur les fruits trop mûrs à la limite du pourri. Si on le laisse s’aérer trop longtemps on peut sentir le carton humide imprégner le verre

Taste

Une attaque légère... beaucoup trop légère/aqueuse, la dilution se fait clairement sentir ! Il faut attendre que le breuvage atteigne le milieu de bouche pour enfin ressentir les premières épices. Ensuite malgré l’attente on reste sur un whisky trop simpliste... Il n’y a que des notes boisées, des épices ( C’est bien un Rye ! )

Finish

Courte/Moyenne sur les épices, il y a cette petite amertume qui n’est pas désagréable mais qui ne rattrape pas l’ensemble.

Comments

Bon disons que je n’ai tout simplement pas du boire la même version que notre cher Jim. Pour 30$, il peut être partagé entre amis/en famille sans problème... De là à le partager avec des amateurs de Whiskys... je ne suis pas sûr !
