I didn't plan on opening this tonight but haven't had a drink in months and wanted to try something new from the cabinet.
Nose - Sweet, light spice, syrupy cream notes along with some toffee.
Palate - Medium, round spicy arrival, with fizz (yes fizz), sugar crystals, explosive sweetness (corn)followed by a slight bitterness (rye) at the end which adds an interesting contrast to the sweet start. With water, much drier and more bitter based. Must be a sour-mash trait.
Finish - Smooth, spicy, and a tug of war between sweet and bitterness. Dry.
Overall, a good (dry) whisky. With a mash bill of 84% corn, 8% rye, 8% malted barley. Quite spicy without water.
