Dill, clove, baking spices, spearmint, jammy raspberries and cherry syrup
Sweet but then the rye spice kicks in. Its dilly in that MGP way and its well balanced as some jammy fruity notes come in. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, though. Theres a lot of clove here and much more cinnamon than I get in Acts 3 or 4 (spoiler alert!)
Medium and mildly astringent but not too bad. More clove and rye spice here and far less port notes than in other batches. A good punch of dill too. This one is definitely more rye spirit forward and lets the port and french oak spice take a backseat.
This is a good bottle and a great winter dram but it cant keep up with Act 3 in my book. I love the port influence in MWND and this just doesn't have much at all with the rye spice dominating so much more than Act 3. Its not a bad dram in the least - its very delicious. I'm going to give it a Rank 6 - its very high quality spirit but not on par with Act 3 in my mind and cant begin to see eye to eye with the mighty Quady port.
