US*1 Sour Mash 43%

ABV: 43
Bottle size: 70
Primary Cask: First Fill New American Oak
Sorry, currently out of stock

Tasted: Nov 2014
A very natural and crisp nose with a distinctive sour fruit note. There is plenty of sweet but herbal rye along with hints of earth and manure (I did say the nose was natural!) Not as heavily oaked as the straight rye with a touch of toast and coffee. With time it becomes very oily with plenty of spirit character becoming evident along with hints of thyme, aniseed and my, the rye has become very spicy!

The palate leads off with the taught rye. Lightly coffee’d with again plenty of oily spirit character and subtle oak. Hints of sour fruit and coffee come through on the middle adding to the ever present herbal notes. Beautifully balanced. The oak and corn add just the right amount of balancing sweetness. Long and herbal with a touch of cardamom and bitter chocolate in the finish.
