    Nose: tasty and aromatic. Biscuity and chocolatey. Tart and fresh "dark" sweetness. Wood to bite into! Great creamy toasting notes. Elegant fruit. "Kernig". Over time, your nose gets set. There is a similar note (adhesive / plastic?) To the Triple Smoke. Hm.

    Mouth: Spicy, tart, somewhat one-dimensional. But not icky.

    Finish: tastes somehow new-make-like. Young. Sourishly sweet, whereby the sweetness builds up in an artificial direction, up to me as violent Hubba Bubba. Then suddenly I have banana. I have to get used to it first.

    Conclusion: my first Rye ever. I like the nose wonderfully, it is drinkable on the palate, but the finish is still a little too unusual for me. Again, this adhesive / plastic note, for which I can not find a suitable description.

    the more time he spends in the glass, the more interesting he becomes. In the mouth I especially like the great finish. Only the poorly integrated alcohol prevents a top rating.
    • Nose
      Solvent, vanilla, orange, roasted aromas, citrus fruit, a hint of barbecue sauce, pickled cucumbers. After some time a nice sweetness comes through and later again fruitiness and chocolate.
    • Taste
      Spicy, cereal, the alcohol burns unpleasantly.
    • Finish
      Long finish with coffee, dark chocolate and marzipan.

  5. Ziegelhütte-Idstein did not rate this whisky Member Junior

    • Nose
      Strong with pepper, dark bread and dried apricot.
    • Taste
      Lots of power and classic rye spices with more apricots and cocoa.
    • Finish
      Long and spicy with notes of sweet, fresh grain.

    In particular, the currant notes makes it extremely delicious and very interesting. Something completely different and barely as Bourbon make out.
    • Nose
      Dark currant (it reminds me of a blackcurrant spritzer), with cherry and the liveliness of a lemon, which makes a great combination. Especially in conjunction with a little sweetie. In addition a very small adhesive note. There is also some elder and minimal vanilla.
    • Taste
      Lemoniness becomes clearer. Likewise, the sweetness and a certain spiciness is added. The currant also stays. This is where the Rye influence comes into play.
    • Finish
      Medium. Now something comes through the barrel. The sweetness disappears to a dryness and a spice through the barrel. The elderberry impression becomes clearer, as well as the Rye influence.
