  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Completely different kind of whiskey, sweet and pungent, I really enjoyed drinking this.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Sweet, vanilla, bourbon-like. Flowerish, honey, and something like Hubabuba chewing gum. Grassy, a little leather.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet, slightly pungent, vanilla and honey, again this Hubabuba chewing gum taste. Later on some potpourri as well.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Still pungent, now some bitterness as well, like grapefruit. Sweet again, vanilla and again the potpourri.

    Sazerac 'Straight Rye' (45%, OB, Kentucky Straight Rye, +/-2011) Colour: gold. Nose: very fragrant, with whiffs of roses and gewürztraminer, then more caraway and coconut, most probably from the fresh oak. Goes on with more vanilla and some slightly sour fudgy notes as well as a few barbecue herbs such as thyme and rosemary, maybe even a little oregano. Globally, smells a bit like a carpenter’s workshop (a carpenter who’s working not only with oak!) Mouth: sweet and spicy, between ginger liqueur and advocaat, then more vanilla, peppermint and white pepper. Also quite some oak, liquorice, bitter chocolate and peach leaves. Firm, but easy body. Finish: quite long, a tad more molassy/sugary, with also more tannins (these notes of bitter chocolate) but also more cardboard in the aftertaste. Slightly disappointing at this point. Comments: it’s not complicated whiskey and you have to like extractive whiskies, but it’s certainly very well made
