Nose
Raspberry bushes in fruit, tangy powerful,great amounts of leather and sweet fruits. A touch of burnt sugar too.
Palate
Intense fruit and spices. A little dustiness like an old church and a really spiced kick at the end.
Finish
The spices dry a little with the fruit lingering.
Comment
A great example of an old rye. One to savour.

Nose
Powerful and masculine. Big berry fruits,blood orange and then, intriguingly,raspberry.
Palate
Another American Whiskey with a twist and very good,too,with a nice balance of fruits and rye. The spiciness stops it from being cloying or over-sweet.
Finish
Nice and balanced with spice and fruit clinging on.
Comment
Pure class. A must for anyone who goes for big bold flavours.
