    This 12-year-old rye was made at the Seagrams Distillery in Lawrenceberg Indiana, originally destined for Japan as a 6-year-old rye in 2003. Apparently five barrels didn't fit in the shipping container and were "rediscovered" when Pernod Ricard sold the Indiana plant to Angostura in 2008. Read more

    Review and Tasting

    Sampled on 30/08/2011

    Appearance

    Clear, deep bronze with bright golden highlights.

    Aroma

    Refined obviously spicy rye with clove and cinnamon spice, chargrilled corn-on-the-cob and buttered toast.

    Taste

    Superbly complex palate with old leathery rye and cinnamon led spice, dried apple fruit, honey, caramel, hazelnuts and bitter chocolate.

    Aftertaste

    Long, dry oaky, spicy finish has a smokiness to it that is freshened by fresh mint.
