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.

    Glenglassaugh Evolution

    An interesting whisky from the recently reopened Glenglassaugh distillery. The nose has lemon, and other fruity notes, along with malt, coconut and considering the 57.2% ABV surprisingly little alcohol burn. The taste is sweet and highly spirited, with grainy notes, citrus peels and is slightly floral, even perfumed. Not a massively complex palate and the finish is dominated by the drying of the alcohol. Evolution is an interesting choice of name, and an appropriate one. If the new make spirit is the hunched up chimp in the iconic evolution of man image, and the refined Glenglassaugh 26 year old is the upright Homo sapiens, then this is the Neanderthal; robust, strong and definitely progress, but still with some way to go.   A proto-whisky.
