Woodford Reserve Distillers Select Straight Rye

This bottle was labelled #3031 from Batch 0887 and bottled at 45.2% ABV.  The nose was very nice, herbal tea with mint and sweet vanilla notes.  The mouthfeel is fresh, light and oily, bittersweet on palate with more vanilla, candy, black coffee and dark chocolate.  The finish has peppermint, wood and grassy rye notes.  With water it gets sweeter, even honeyed, while heat builds in the finish with chilli spiced dark chocolate.  Overall very delicious; a light and subtle of straight rye.

    Gordon and MacPhail Glen Grant 25 year old

    A light nose, sweet and rich reminds of a over ripe black banana. The whisky itself is complex and rich with a dark chocolate, pepper and cinnamon tastes and also some musty, old books, leathery and hint of cigars, tar and tobacco, hanging around like an old man's library. A big, after dinner dram.
