  • Excerpt: If this two-year rye is indicative of things to come in the future, get ready for the media myth-making maelstrom to catapult the Willett brand into the stratosphere.

  • Intro:

    This is a 2 year release of Willetts own rye distillate bottled at Cask Strength.

  • Nose:

    Vanilla and rye spice. Some nougat and clove.

  • Taste:

    Spicy with a mild note of plastic. Vanilla and clove sweeps in with some odd vegetable notes. Cinnamon and molasses on the way out. Pretty green but its only 2 years old.

  • Finish:

    Short but not too hot for the proof. Its complex while its here and I am pretty surprised - its a generally acceptable quality finish for something so young.

  • Overall:

    This is the youngest Willet Ive had and Im impressed with what they are doing with their own distillate. I will be very much looking forward to see how age treats this distillate.

  • Score:

    5
