Review and Tasting
Sampled before 1st May 2011
(Vestal 2009 Rye) Crystal clear.
A splash of water helps reveal Vestal's nose - reminiscent of rye bread with a thin slither of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
Characterful palate is clean yet carries considerable raw rye character.
Turns little bitter towards the black pepper influenced finish.
