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.

    Glenfiddich Select Cask

    The nose on this travel retail expression has malt, honey, vanilla and a little spicy kick to it. The spice carries over into the taste at first, and then more of the honey and vanilla from the nose push through along with lemon. Caramel sweetness lingers though a peppery finish. Perhaps my least favorite of the three no age statement "cask series" single malts. Not Glenfiddich’s best work.
