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.

    Another solid Japanese whisky.  The nose on this blend is very sweet, fruits, raisins, vanilla, even warm custard.  With the raisin and vanilla notes I was reminded of rum and raisin flavored ice cream.   The mouth feel is smooth and creamy with candy, caramel and cocoa powder.  The finish has some wood, slightly bitter oak notes and spice and even a hint of salt.  Very good stuff, almost as much a dessert as a whisky.
