This was a bottle from warehouse PN, Barrel No. 344D. So I first had this in the Groucho Club in London following a Small Batch and defintely preferred the bolder flavour profile of the Single Barrel.

Colour is darker, a kind of clear chestnut brown.

Nose is very rye forward. Lots of soft mint, spearmint, dill, because of the OBSV mashbill which is 35% rye, and then it's lots of soft mellow sweetness, brown sugars, soft subtle spices. Sutle wood, like sandal wood and young oak wood. Bold yet harmonizing aromas.

Taste is minty, spearmint, spices, brown sugars, little dill, stem ginger. Slightly astringency from the wood. Sweet, spicy and minty.

On the finish there's the spearmint and baking spices and a little hotness from the alcohol. Nice and lingering.

Masterful whisky. Bold yet soft and smooth.
