Tasting Notes by Jason0142
Nose: distinctly Spicy (more savory spice then sweet on my nose), peppercorns, toasted rye bread, slight citrusy notes, an undercurrent of the slight vinilla and corn sweetness you get from a bourbon. The 50.5% alc carries the flavours exceptionally well and tickles the nose.
Palate: zesty and tangy, slight honey sweetness with vinilla's, spiciness is back, with some bittersweet woody flavours, hints of charcoal, slight hints of buttered corn and toasted grains.
Finish: Quite long, Lingering notes from the Palate, lovely toasted grains, some cooked vinilla and a citrusy zestiness.
First Rye whisky ever so I hope this review isn't too bad, I found this to be a lovely little bottle and damn cheap as well. Works well as a mixer with coke instead of bourbon and considering it's quite cheap I'll be able to make real Manhattan cocktails on a reasonable budget. Can't wait to check out other rye whisky's.
