Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The visual element alone invites intrigue. The whiskey bears a deep amber color with a burnished copper sheen, a direct consequence of its double-oaking process. The legs are viscous, indicative of its rich texture and concentrated flavor profile.
The aromatic profile of Nulu Double Oaked Rye presents a compelling complexity. The nose is immediately met with a burst of classic rye spiciness, melding seamlessly with nuanced aromas of caramelized oak, dark chocolate, and a touch of orange zest. Faint undertones of leather and tobacco add a sophisticated depth.
This is where the double oaking truly distinguishes itself. The initial entry is robust with flavors of black pepper and toasted rye grain, traditional to the category but amped up by the dual maturation process. Soon, waves of caramel, dark cherry, and molasses wash over the palate, delicately softened by the creamy vanilla that emanates from the second round of oaking.
The finish is enduring, highlighting the full-bodied nature of this rye. It concludes with lingering notes of toasted nuts, a smidgen of licorice, and a return of that beautifully integrated spiciness, offering a balanced complexity that keeps one engaged till the last drop.
The spirit’s mouthfeel doesn’t disappoint either—rich, oily, and full-bodied, it fills the mouth with a velvety texture that further solidifies its standing as a premium rye whiskey.
