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.

    The Glenlivet 16 year old Nadurra

    I bought my first bottle of this at the distillery shop in 2011. The nose has lemon peel, sugar and with the whisky reminds me of a hot toddy. Really nice. The taste is sweet, with more lemon, very sharp, and I can still taste tthe signature Glenlivet pineapple. The finish has fresh cut wood and lots of spicy notes. For a 16 year old whisky this is very fresh and vibrant. Good stuff.
