Review and Tasting

Sampled on 03/10/2017


(sample bottle batch 011, bottle No. 01302) Clear, coppery amber.


Acacia honey, resinous cedar, tobacco leaf, cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper spice, with blanched almond, mint, marzipan, vanilla, apple and pear.


Clove, cinnamon and black pepper spice with resinous cedar wood, dry faintly smoky oak, toasty malt, tobacco leaf, vanilla and baked apple.


Long woody clove spiced finish.


At mere 45.2% alc./vol. and with a low 53% rye mash bill, in both its composition and flavour, this is a quite bourbon-like straight rye – consequently it's much easier drinking than your average straight rye.
