Intense, brittle, peppery rye spices. Hints of Seville orange; marmalade to begin with, then perfumed oak. The rye is stunning and with time an earthy note appears with dusty, cocoa powder tannins and Colombian coffee.
Also opens with light, herbal and brittle rye spices. Mocha and bitter oak follow. Drying towards the middle with those herbal notes building in intensity.
Good length with the herbal rye lingering; the oak gently bittering.
The clarity of the rye is absolutely stunning. If it turns out that there’s no rye here then I’m a Dutchman!
