Notes

About Cask No. RW7.1: Rye used for this bottling was harvested from master distiller Bill Welter's family farm in Putnam County, Indiana. The farm has been in the family since the 1940's and its certified organic rye were used for this cask. 100% estate grown rye.

Tasting Note: We fell head over heals for figs and sultanas in banana bread, topped with a thick layer of rich chocolate and shrouded in the fragrant smoke of pipe tobacco. As the relationship progressed we discovered thick-cut marmalade and manuka honey oozing over almonds and fennel seeds. Then with a few drops of water we found ourselves captivated by coriander seeds and lemon peel, complemented by brown sugar on pink grapefruit and the evocative aromas of linseed oil. Now fully smitten, the icing on the madeira cake came with tart fruits, citrus peel and lemon candy sweets rolled in white pepper.
