Woodford Reserve Distillers Select Straight Rye

This bottle was labelled #3031 from Batch 0887 and bottled at 45.2% ABV.  The nose was very nice, herbal tea with mint and sweet vanilla notes.  The mouthfeel is fresh, light and oily, bittersweet on palate with more vanilla, candy, black coffee and dark chocolate.  The finish has peppermint, wood and grassy rye notes.  With water it gets sweeter, even honeyed, while heat builds in the finish with chilli spiced dark chocolate.  Overall very delicious; a light and subtle of straight rye.

    The Macallan 18 year old Sherry Oak

    This is sometimes refered to as the "Rolls Royce of Whisky", often by Macallan marketing department, but this is good stuff.  The nose has sherry (no surprise), dried fruits, orange peel and dark chocolate.  None of the slight rubbery note in the nose I get with younger Macallan expressions.  The taste is very smooth and rich, creamy and even after 18 years in a cask not overly woody or oaked.   Really well balanced, drying with leather and perhaps a little smoke in the finish.  An after dinner treat and one of my favorites.
