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.

    Stalk and Barrel Cask #5

    This was the first sample we tried in recent USA Tweet Tasting that was organized in October 2013 by Johanne McGinnes, the Whisky Lassie. My tasting notes were written and simultaneously posted online and the whiskey was revealed at the end.   The nose is grainy, with vanilla and butter. Creamy with a high ABV (turned out to be correct). With time opens up and gets more fruity; green apples. The taste has more apple but quickly yields to spice. Felt young and with water fell apart a little on my palate and got peppery with grain spirit notes. A little pine resin and salt in the short finish. I rated this as 4th of the 4 samples we tried that night.
