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.

    Ben Nevis 10 year old

    A rather discrete distillery, despite being located in one premium tourist spots, Fort William at the foot of Britain's tallest mountain Ben Nevis.  This standard offering may explain why they are discrete.  The nose is malty, yeasty and has a hint of wood. The taste is sweet with caramel, lemon drops, cocoa and a waxy, oily note.  Finish has pepper, oak and the wax turns into furniture polish.  With water gets a little sweeter with some more oak in finish.
