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.

    Laphroaig 10 year old

    Powerful and pungent nose.   Alcohol and peat in the nose, some salt, phenolic and fruity notes.  The taste is smooth and medium bodied, sweet at first, a flash of caramel and even vanilla notes but those quickly fade and spices, pepper and cinnanom, and peat smoke grow. The finish is dominated by the peat smoke and the classic medicinal and phenolic notes of Lahproaig.  At the right time and place this is great dram, but it not by any means an every day drink for me.  Not overly complex and I find a few rough edges in this one.  I think there are better more complex and rounded expressions of Laphroaig.
