  1. Whiskywobbler scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Odd rye with unexpected notes of glue/formaldehyde and limoncello. Slightly unbalanced and I wonder if the distillation when completely all right.

    Nose:
    Hint of glue, behind that, there is quite some sweetness. It is not a very typical rye nose though. But it is nice, given some time and warmth. I get some green apples and some unripe pears.

    Taste:
    Little rough, but there is a rye note in here. I doubt this is a 100% rye. There is also quite some grain whiskey note. There is some caramel and toffee, but all in all this is not an very outspoken whiskey.

    Body:
    Medium

    Finish:
    Medium length. It is a bit bitter, which makes me assume a rather high grain percentage. a bit dry too. There are notes of caramel and ginger here.

    Price:
    Don't know this was a sample

    Presentation:
    Don't know this was a sample

    Comments:
    This is a underperforming rye, it is just above mixer level.
