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.

    Jack Daniel's Single Barrel

    As much as I try to like Jack Daniels and not appear to be biased against the world's best selling American whisky, I just can't find one that does anything for me, but this is definately the best one to date.  The nose is sweet, with caramel popcorn, candy floss and buttery.  The taste is sweet, sweet, sweet.  Brown sugar and chocolate cookie and quite smooth.  The finish gets bitter, perhaps the charred wood filtration, stringent and a little hot.  This gets a lot better with some ice as it closes the gap and tames the both the sweet taste and hot finish.
