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.

    The Nant Double Malt

    Another sample from La Maison du Whisky's box set of Australian whiskies and this one had the signficant disadvantage of being the next whisky I tried after Sullivans Cover Port Barrel blew me away.  However it was still good.  The nose was fruity, oranges and peaches and some caramel sweetness.  Reminded me a little of a Terry's Chocolate Orange.  The taste is smooth and body is quite light.  Cirtus peel with some of the bitter pith and some chocolate.  With water more milk chocolate and caramel sweetness.  The finish has a little pepper and pot pourri spice, orangey and slightly perfumed.  Very good.
