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.

    Glen Garioch 12 year old

    A very interesting nose.  Fruity and malty and even a little oak as well.  Perhaps a little vanilla was well.  The taste is quite dry and peppery and warming.  There are some of the fruits from the nose as well.  I get some sherry notes as well.  Nice balance and a fruity, spicy finish (cloves and cinnamon).   Maybe some mint in the finish as well.  With time a little chocolate develops along with the mint in the taste as well.    After Eight mint anyone?  Way better than the 8 year old expression I tried a few years ago (and I believe they have since pulled - which was a good idea).  Overall very drinakable and rewards a little patience.
