Lot no. 40 Rye Whisky
100% unmalted rye
Virgin Oak, heavy char
Hiram Walker Distillery
Corby Spirit and Wine Ltd.
Copper pennies, rye bread, a little floral.
Dry, dusty rye bread, cinnamon, bruised oranges.
Long with plenty of guess what? Rye! Organic, dark German sour bread comes to mind. A little minty with green bitter lemongrass.
If you like a bold rye whisky then do try this. The price is reasonable and it delivers a lot of strong rye notes. For the price, you get good value for money. If you like gentle American ryes with a bit of corn in the mash bill to soften and sweeten things, then you may not like this whisky.
