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.

    Gibson's Finest 12 year old

    This is a slightly more exclusive Canadian blend and little harder to find, but worth it.  The nose has vanilla, oak and some acetone and grain spirit notes.  The nose does not give much indication of the complexities to come.  The taste is very smooth with a creamy mouthfeel with milk chocolate (suggests some rye in the blend), vanilla and toasted oak.  The finish is spicy and lingers with more rye herbal notes and even mint.
