  • Intro:

    These are single casks of Alberta rye, aged at WhistlePig and bottled at cask strength. This was conducted as a mystery, and I messaged my notes to /u/gleaver49 for the reveal.

  • Nose:

    Sweet clove, allspice, caramel. Super fruity, waffles, rye notes. Really fruity and sweet.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich, loaded with graham cracker. Its definitely rye. Fruity caramel abounds...faint melon? Some heat but loaded with vanilla and honey. The rye character is there but its not MGP rye.

  • Finish:

    Long, some heat, lots of faint honey and clove. Caramel and vanilla are big here also.

  • Overall:

    This is too fruity to be Thomas Handy / Sazerac. I don't think its a Russell's Rye. c Those are my two best guesses since the fruitiness screams Canadian and those are the only two not shitty Northern ryes I can think of. Guessing proof is 50%+ since the heat is pretty present.

  • Score:

    6
