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.
