Cask No. RW5.1

The spice of life

Indiana, USA

Spice galore, buttery roasted fennel caramelised on the edges with garlic and herbs but at the same time caraway seeds, dill and minty aromas made this a very calm and relaxed experience. A mouthcoating dry spiciness with notes of blueberries and mulberries, a delicate hint of liquorice, sweet tobacco and well-integrated tannins. After reduction, a walk through a pine forest to a shop selling all manner of essential oils while on the palate a spiced rum and clementine baba as well as traditional boiled dandelion and burdock sweets. The mash bill for this rye whiskey consists of 95% rye and 5% malted barley, matured in a #4 char new oak barrel with #2 char heads.
