This is the 2013 release at 64.2%. An uncut & unfiltered Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey.
This barrel proof rye is approximately 8 years old and is crafted from a small batch of around 15 barrels. Since hitting the market is has won many accolades but the one that seems to have caught most peoples eye is being named World Whiskey of the year by Jim Murray in his 2013 Whisky Bible.
I have read a lot and heard a lot about this Whiskey so I am excited to finally get my hands on a bottle.
Nose. Sweetness, floral, honey, herbal with super ripe sweet plums and caramel. Wonderful nose, you could sit and nose for a long time.
Oily, smooth and creamy.
Palate: fruit, allspice, liquorice, honey, cloves, more ripe dark fruits.
Finish: very spicy, sultanas, honey, long. The spiciness is amazing, fine, middle of tongue, hard to define.
I drink much more Whisky than Whiskey but it is apparent that this is a very special bottle. Complex yet hiding nothing. Beautiful.
