Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The pour unveils an inviting deep amber coloration, accentuated by copper hues, encapsulating the richness of a bountiful harvest. Its legs are thick and leisurely, signaling a viscosity that promises a luxurious mouthfeel.
The olfactory experience is a cavalcade of nuances, beginning with the classical spice notes of rye—think allspice and cloves. This is immediately complemented by the sweet aroma of dried fruits, along with caramel, vanilla, and a smattering of floral undertones.
Taking the first sip is akin to biting into a multi-layered cake. The spiciness, characteristic of rye, greets the palate but is quickly tempered by a wave of sweeter elements. Expect hints of figs, ripe plums, and honey accompanied by an undercurrent of toasted oak and butterscotch. The complexity is simply staggering; it's a whirlwind tour of flavors that defy simple categorization.
The finish is long, warm, and increasingly complex. A peppery spice lingers, rounded out by the sumptuous sweetness of burnt sugar and a trace of earthy tobacco, ensuring an end note that's as balanced as it is intricate.
Voluptuous would be the term to describe its texture—a smooth, rounded mouthfeel that beautifully conveys the whiskey's full-bodied nature without becoming cloying.
