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.

    Ridgemont Reserve 1792

    A very good value and drinkable bourbon from the Sazerac owned Barton 1792 distillery which I first tried at jim Murray's Masterclass In Victoria. The 1792 date refers to formation of the commonwealth of Kentucky and not the age of the distillery.....a slight deception maybe but I forgive them as they make an excellent spirit. I was told by the tour guide at Barton that 1792 had a high rye content (she estimated 30 percent) and that certainly comes through in the taste. The nose has some grain spirit notes, with corn syrup sweetness. Very rich with a hint of alcohol as well. The taste had caramel and vanilla which fades to oaky spice finish with rye notes. Delicious.
