Shane_IL Tasting note

Color
Burnished
Nose

Sticky wood. One of those ice-cream based alcohol desserts. Caramel. Vanilla pudding. Gentle woodspice (maybe some hints of rye spice?). Butterscotch. Freshly cut planks. Roasted nuts. There's a faint fruity note in the background that I can't put my finger on.

Taste

Loads of wood, bitter and sweet. Creamy, sweet vanilla. Bit of a porridge note. Cinnamon and pepper on the swallow.

Finish

Medium-Long. Bitter wood. Anise. Creme Soda. Fruit (nectarines?)

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Kräftig, viel Karamell, Kräuter und ein paar Aldehyde. Eine buttrige Kuchennote kommt dazu, ein paar Röstaromen. Ganz zart sind saure Töne auszumachen. Der Alkohol stört nicht in der Nase. Erwärmt werden die Röst- und die sauren Aromen stärker, die Nase wird runder und voller. 

Taste

Die üblichen Kräuterbonbonnoten mit Schwerpunkt auf einer malzigen Honigsüße, sehr kraftvoll, dabei sehr gut eingebundener Alkohol. Zum Ende hin ist auch die Eiche zu spüren. Recht ölig im Mund, gut ausbalanciert. ‎

Finish

Der Abgang ist nicht übermäßig lang und ohne besonderen Schwerpunkt. Der Alkohol wärmt bis weit in den Abgang. 

Comments

Direkt im Anschluss an den 2015er Hype-Rye Crown Royal Northern Harvest verkostet. Da liegen Welten dazwischen! Kräftig, rund und wesentlich besser in der Balance zeigt sich dieser hier. Genau das richtige für die kalte Jahreszeit. 

Gruß von hier...

A very spicy, oily and powerful rye with a long and spicy, almost peppery finish. I liked it very much.
