Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
When poured into a glass, Fort Hamilton Single Barrel Rye Whiskey radiates a captivating amber hue, edged with golden highlights. The rich coloration signifies both its quality and the oak barrel influence.
The nose immediately unfolds a diverse aromatic tapestry, combining the spiciness quintessential to rye with softer, mellower notes. An initial waft of cinnamon and black pepper is complemented by hints of toasted almonds and dried apricots. An underlying current of fresh-cut grass and leather add dimensions of complexity.
Upon tasting, the experience is one of sophisticated balance. Spicy rye grain characteristics are the central players, manifesting as clove and cardamom, but they are masterfully tempered by layers of butterscotch, dark chocolate, and ripe cherries. The mouthfeel is both robust and silky, allowing for a slow savoring of its intricate flavor profile.
The finish of Fort Hamilton Single Barrel is remarkable for its duration and evolving nature. It starts with a warm, peppery spiciness and gradually transforms, revealing notes of orange peel, brown sugar, and a subtle smokiness. A final touch of oak lingers on the palate, providing a gratifying conclusion to a rich and complex experience.
