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.

    Comments: Nice all around Manhattan and like the kick of 114 proof bourbon but didn't get complexity the recipe ( 2 x vermouth, 2 x bitters) would suggest

    Alaska Outlaw Whiskey

    To say I like Alaska a lot is like saying Alaskans like guns and fishing a lot. That is if by “like a lot” you mean “absolutely bat shit crazy”. Alaskan whiskey isn’t really that crazy of an idea when you consider show similar it is in climate to parts of Scotland and Canada and this expression is closer in style to Canadian whiskey as it is a blend made from barley and corn. The nose is lighter than a June night in Anchorage, a little sweet with ripe banana. The taste is woody (the website says smoky… optimistic I think) with toasted coconut and brown sugar. The finish is a little spicy and shorter than (….you guessed it) a winter’s day in Fairbanks. Easy enough to drink and probably easy to dismiss, but it’s inoffensive and as much as I love Alaska I have to admit no one is going to go “absolutely bat shit crazy” over this one yet.
