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 nose has lots of fruit, sultanas and even pineapple, with a hint of smoke.    The taste is rich and spicy. with warm honey notes (like a hot toddy), more fruit and smoke in the finish.  This one gets lots of good reviews, and I can see why, there is a lot going on and it's all good.
