Nose: Grassy rye spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, sweet citrus, wet cedar, faint ginseng, and more rye. The herbal character keeps the nose from being too sweet. There’s a bit of a sting here, hinting at the respectable 50% abv.
Palate: Smooth arrival with a creamy texture. Solid rye flavours. Rye, grass, pine, earth, and damp wood, with cinnamon rounding it out. I love that spicy tingle that only a good rye whisky can give us.
Finish: Lingering rye spice, burnt caramel, mushrooms and charcoal, with wisps of spearmint just below the surface. Medium finish, but very pleasant.
Thoughts: I realize that this is very much a standard, mass produced, accessible rye whiskey in the States, but its exotic here in Taiwan. And it’s good. For me; this is vastly superior to the standard KC. I find the standard KC decent and enjoyable, but not great. But this has just what you’d want from a good rye whiskey; good balance, rich body, and a nice grassy kick. And I’m a sucker for these KC bottles, too!
價錢和品質都很好,比起KNOB CREEK SMALL BATCH 我更喜歡 RYE得這一款,
