On of the hardest releases to get this year. I was fortunate enough to taste this with a local club tonight. This rye was aged in warehouse K for 18 years and imo, it's the best of the 2013 BTAC.
Nose: Brown sugar, herbal, perfume, bread pudding, cherries.
Taste: It's rather light bodied but wow does this have texture. Rather velvety and just a ridiculously lush mouth feel. Predominant flavor is a cherry cough syrup. It's medicinal, with a big fruits/red berry overload. Chocolate cherries, maraschino cherries, along with mint.
Finish: The Rye finally shines on the finish. But you get more of the same cherry cough syrup, oak, and mint. The finish is long and lasts with the rye persisting throughout.
Consistent smells, taste, superb texture on the body, and a nice finish. The best of this years BTAC imo.
